BenRiach 12 Year Old Sherry Wood


Description:

BenRiach, the unconventional Speyside distillery, has reintroduced a gold award winning expression to its core range. The BenRiach Sherry Wood Aged 12 Years showcases the distillery’s reputation for creative, multi-faceted maturation. Made using three styles of sherry cask maturation: full sherry cask maturation, combined with Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry cask finishing, the expression offers layers of fruit sweetness and toasted oak spice with a luscious dessert-like finish.

This expression was one of five BenRiachs to win gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2018, bottled at 46%, non-chill filtered and of natural colour. The expression will join the core collection of BenRiach, which distills three malt whisky styles - unpeated, peated and triple distilled - and holds some of the most experimental casks in Speyside. 

 

Notes from Master Blender Rachel Barrie:
The BenRiach Sherry Wood Aged 12 Years uses three-way sherry wood maturation, a creative approach where each facet is combined in harmony to deliver a rich and balanced taste. The result - a multi-layered Single Malt Scotch Whisky with notes of fruit cocktail, lilting spices, honeyed caramel and chocolate sweetness - an enrichment of BenRiach’s signature sweet, fruit-laden style.

 

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Deep golden-bronze.

Nose: 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-caramel and toasted vanilla pod add to the multi-layered sweetness.

Taste: A rich fruit cocktail of honeyed fig, baked pineapple and sultana fuse with chocolate fondant and muscovado sugar, lifted by mandarin cream, ground nutmeg and vanilla. 

Finish: Savour nectarine, candied grape and star anise, lingering into the dessert-like sherried finish.
