BenRiach 19 Year Old 1994 vintage Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. United Kingdom Exclusive single hogshead cask #286 bottled June 2013 and limited to only 215 bottles.
Nose: Intense waves of spiced oak with creamy vanilla over apricots and peaches, all backed by a delicate, sweet honeyed peat.
Palate: A combination of delicate soft fruits and sweet oak spices, covered by dramatic bursts of intense wood smoke, which mellow and mingle with hints of melon and pineapple in the lasting after-note.
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
