Benriach 12YO Sherry Wood
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.
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.
Benriach Smoky Twelve
The Smoky Twelve is the perfect marriage of fruit, malt, oak and rich layers of smoke. Three cask matured in an unconventional mix of bourbon, sherry and Marsala this creamy and smooth single malt is multi-layered with flavours of ripened fruit, aromatic smoky sweetness and warming oak spice
“For me it’s baked orange in a wonderful cake, fired over an open fire, with dark chocolate flavour.” - Dr. Rachel Barrie, Master Blender at Benriach

Palate: Dark chocolate, fruit peel, brown sugar and smoked oak, lingering into a cocoa and orange smoked finish.
