- Benriach Peated Quarter Casks
BenRiach Peated Quarter Casks Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Peated BenRiach that has been fully matured in quarter casks, thus intensifying the maturation.
Nose: Elegant waves of wood smoke intensify to burning heather with a delicious contribution of ripe orchard fruits. Subtle notes of peaches, cinnamon sugar and a slightly herbal note of fresh barley give an added contrast to the unique, rich peat character.
Palate: Intense peat smoke mellows to smouldering peat embers infused with green pear and nectarine fruit notes. Nutty oak and vanilla pods combine with a touch of white pepper and a twist of lime to give an intriguing, crisp, smoky finish.
BenRiach Single Malt Whiskey
Benriach Distillery in 1898 just south of Elgin complete with a siding connecting it directly to the great North of Scotland Railway. But Benriach was forced to close in 1900 and remained closed until 1965 and whilst its traditional floor maltings continued to operate complete with the pagoda roof over the malt kiln it too finally closed in 1999. Having re-opened in 2004 the Benriach range is now extensive and features age expressions beginning with Benriach 10 years, 16 Year Old and vintage cask releases running back to the 1970s. The distillery is owned by Brown Forman of America.
