Speyside Whisky: Probably the heart of the malt industry, with distilleries almost shoulder to shoulder along the Spey and its tributaries. Speysides can be huge and sherry wooded, with smokiness, great length and complexity. Often the nose is enough to entrance.

Benriach Claret Finish  16year  46%

Benriach Claret Finish

Category: Speyside Whisky

Age: 16year

Year:

Alcohol by Volume: 46%

Distiller: Distillery

Distiller notes:
Matured in the traditional style in American bourbon barrels, this whisky is then ‘finished’ in Claret wine barrels, sourced from the Bordeux Region. During this second period of maturation the whisky derives many interesting characteristics specific to the Claret wine barrels. The Claret Finish is part of the BenRiach Wood Finish series. 3 new wood finishes have been released in 2010 and the other ‘finishes’ include Rioja and Burgundy. All are available in over 20 export markets, and in the UK through specialist, independent whisky retailers. NOSE: Clean and fruity. Stewed plums and damsons with sweet oak nuances. Embracing but with real finesse. COLOUR: Bright sparkling orange gold. TASTE: Spiced fruit scones, enrobed in a fig and date syrup. Fairly light acidity, yet with lovely mouth cleansing fruits. A whisky with the flavours standing in perfect equilibrium

The house style for the Benriach distillery is: Cookie-like, with touches of butterscotch. Restorative; a mid-afternoon malt?
