Quick Overview

The Spey Valley, in which the BenRiach Distillery was built by John Duff in 1898, is home to many of Scotland's great whiskies, but BenRiach has its own uniqueness borne from the particular methods and skills of the men who craft the whisky, the ingredients they use, the distinctive copper stills and the high quality barrels selected for maturation. BenRiach boasts one further difference - standing apart from the other Spey Valley distilleries, the traditional floor maltings with their distinctive pagoda style chimneys can produce peated, malted barley, enabling the distillery to capture the defining taste of peat reek in a few of their special bottlings. A recent Benriach 16yo that has dispensed with the Latin naming system, this has been finished in Sauternes. The standard issue 16yo is a terrific dram, so this should be very interesting. Matured in the traditional style in American bourbon barrels, the whisky is then ‘finished’, for approximately 30 months, in Chateau d’Yquem Premier Cru Superior Sauternes wine barrels, sourced from the Bordeaux region of France. During this second period of maturation the whisky interacts with the oak wood and derives a number of additional flavors and aromas specific to the Sauternes barrel.
