Introducing a captivating new addition to The Balvenie Stories range, A Rare Discovery from Distant Shores. This extraordinary expression of The Balvenie has aged gracefully for 27 years, revealing enchanting notes of muscovado sugar and manuka honey. Like all offerings within the Stories collection, this exquisite bottling brings to life a tale of creativity, innovation, and friendship that paved the way for its creation. The narrative begins with The Balvenie Malt Master, David C. Stewart, and his long-time friend, John Barrett. John had a hunch that he had stumbled upon something truly exceptional when he introduced David to samples of Caroni Rum. David and his team recognized the potential, driven by their creativity and wealth of experience. In 2014, they made the audacious decision to transfer some 20-year-old Balvenie whisky from its customary American oak Hogshead casks into Caroni Rum casks sourced by John. The result was a rum finish unlike any other, and the additional 7 years spent maturing in these ex-Caroni rum casks transformed and elevated the whisky's flavor profile into something truly extraordinary—a Rare Discovery from Distant Shores.

Benriach The Smoky Ten Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a distinctive expression that pays homage to Benriach's unconventional approach to whisky-making. In the early 1970s, the distillery broke with tradition in Speyside by returning to the old-style method of distilling batches of whisky with malted barley that was smoked with Highland peat. This unique approach using wood-rich Highland peat gives Benriach's peated whiskies a distinctly sweet and smoky character. The Smoky Ten is crafted from a combination of unpeated and peated spirit. It undergoes a triple maturation process, spending at least ten years in a combination of bourbon barrels, Jamaican rum casks, and toasted virgin oak. Tasting Note by BenRiach:Nose: Ripe orchard fruit syrup, smoked honey glaze and oak spice.Palate: Smoked applewood, honey maple and spiced pear finishing with lingering fruit and smoked oak.
