Benriach The Twenty One Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky Four Cask Matured 21 Year 1898
A richly sumptuous single malt, interwoven with mellow smoke and a masterful curation of oak. Crafted from a combination of un-peated and peated spirit and four cask matured for at least twenty five years in sherry casks, bourbon barrels, virgin oak casks and Madeira Island wine casks. During long maturation Benriach’s sweet Speyside smoke mellows and integrates with the fruit, malt and oak. After twenty-five years, rich layering develops into caramelized smoke, further enhanced through multi-layered cask maturation. The whisky from each cask type, imbued with particular flavor characteristics, is then expertly married together to create a sumptuous single malt, layered with baked fruit, honey malt and toasted oak spice with a long, rich, caramelized smoke finish. All in perfect balance.
