BENRIACH 20 YEAR OLD 43%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 13205
This very mature 20 year-old single malt has won numerous awards, and on the basis of its popularity among lovers of old Speysides, would seem to improve upon acquaintance.
Known for its unpeated malts (90% of its production) and aged in ex-bourbon casks, Benriach offers a wide range of whiskies (8-30 years) that perfectly express the fruitiness and delicate nature typical of single malts from Speyside.

- The brand
Rather unjustly, Benriach was, until just a few years ago, relatively unknown, but it hasn’t ceased to make up for lost time. Indeed, this distillery has, for many decades, had a huge amount to offer and has proven this time and time again since being bought in 2004. Its warehouses are bursting with all sorts of sherry butts (Oloroso, Pedro Ximénez, etc.), new American oak casks, ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads dating back to the 1960s, as well as casks previously used for wine, rum, madeira, port and even Rioja! This Speyside single malt is entirely worthy of the interest it has garnered from master blenders since its creation. Find out more
