The much anticipated Benriach The Twelve, a 12 year old Speyside single malt matured in a trio of casks - sherry casks, bourbon casks and Port casks!
BenRiach - Crowned Global Whisky Distiller of the Year, World Whiskies Awards 2015
To make Benriach Twelve, Benriach spirit is three cask matured for at least twelve years in sherry casks, bourbon barrels and port casks. The whisky from each cask is then expertly married together to create a smooth, sherry-rich single malt, layered with baked fruit, maple honey and cocoa, perfectly balanced with a lingering sultana and spiced mocha finish.
