Comments and Tasting Notes by BenRiach
The BenRiach 10th Anniversary bottling is a strictly limited one-off bottling to commemorate a very special occasion.
Back in 2004, Billy Walker and his two South African partners Geoff Bell and Wayne Kieswetter purchased BenRiach and turned it into one of Scotland’s most admired distilleries.
On September 20 that year, the first distillation under the new owners was filled to cask. Ten years on, Billy Walker has married together four outstanding casks from the first week of production to create this limited bottling, at 46% vol, with only 1106 bottles available for sale.
The four bourbon barrels - 7257, 7258, 7259 and 7260 -, distilled on September 21, 2004, are the perfect choice to celebrate BenRiach’s tenth birthday.
Ripe white pear, fruit salad syrup and rich clotted cream hold a crisp twist of candied peel and soft vanilla.
Gleaming rich harvest gold.
Crisp barley with peppery toasted oak and stem ginger flood over rich crème brulee, coconut butter and vanilla poached pear.
