Benriach The Twenty One Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky is an exquisite and well-matured expression. Crafted from a combination of unpeated and peated spirit, this whisky undergoes a quadruple maturation process, spending at least twenty-one years in various cask types. These casks include bourbon barrels, sherry casks, virgin oak casks, and Bordeaux red wine casks.
During its long maturation period, the sweet Speyside smoke in Benriach's spirit mellows and harmoniously integrates with the fruit, malt, and oak flavors. After twenty-one years, a rich layering of flavors develops into an elegant honeyed smoke profile, enhanced by the multi-layered cask maturation process.
With a natural cask-imparted color and an ABV of 46%, Benriach The Twenty One offers a sophisticated and layered tasting experience that reflects the culmination of over two decades of maturation.
