BenRiach 13 Year Old 1999 vintage Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in ex-bourbon barrels, before being finished in Virgin American oak casks.
Nose: Full and sweet, with notes of toasted vanilla pods to the fore. Clotted cream and barley sugar.
Finish: A vibrant and intense dram; sweet toasted oak, rich vanilla and honey interact with caramelised apples. Creamy, with floral notes, and an elegant dry finish.
John Duff commissioned the Elgin based architect Charles C. Doig to design Benriach Distillery which was duly established in 1898 just south of Elgin and complete with a siding connecting Benriach Distillery directly to the great North of Scotland Railway and the scotch blenders down south. But Benriach Distillery opened just as the whisky bubble burst and was forced to closed in 1900 and remained closed until 1965. Benriach’s maltings did continued to operate but finally closed in 1999. An iconic Scottish malt whisky distillery complete with a Doig pagoda roof over the malt kiln. The Benriach Distillery range includes limited releases of triple distilled, peated and un-peated single malt whiskies. Benriach Distillery participates in the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival
