About the Whisky
At BenRiach Distillery we have developed a reputation for innovative maturation, using a diverse mix of cask types. This luscious 12 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is unconventionally made using three facets of sherry cask maturation: full sherry cask maturation, combined with Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry cask finishing, for unexpected layers of fruit sweetness and toasted oak spice. Each facet of sherry cask maturation is expertly combined by our Master Blender to work in harmony, creating a luscious Single Malt Scotch Whisky with a multi-layered cocktail of fruit notes, further enriching BenRiach’s signature sweet, fruit-laden style.
Sherry cask maturation at its most fruity and luscious. Baked fruit salad with fig, pear, apricot and glacé cherry in mandarin syrup. Honey glazed flan with crème-carameland toasted vanilla pod add to the multi-layered sweetness.
A rich fruit cocktail of honeyed fig, baked pineapple and sultana fuse with chocolate fondant and muscovado sugar, lifted by mandarin cream, ground nutmeg andvanilla.
Savour nectarine, candied grape and star anise, lingering in to the dessert-like sherried finish.
