Scotland Airports Exclusive
On shelf from February and bottled exclusively for World of Whiskies Scotland, The BenRiach 2005 Exclusive Cask Bottling is a 13-year-old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, taken exclusively from Oloroso Butt Cask 2574. The cask was hand selected by Master Blender, Rachel Barrie, and there are just 650 bottles available to purchase.
Distillery founder, John Duff, travelled to Kentucky and South Africa in pursuit of whisky adventures, returning to Scotland in 1898 to build The BenRiach distillery. It is in his adventurous spirit that The BenRiach distils a 'troika' of malt whisky styles - non peated, peated and triple distilled and holds some of the most experimental casks in Speyside.
Selected to celebrate the distillery's bold and innovative approach, this cask bottling is golden in colour, and has a nose of caramel, vanilla, liquorice, milk chocolate, earthy, honey, pears, roses and tropical fruit. On the palate sherry, liquorice, under-ripe apples gooseberries and burnt oak, makes this specific expression a whisky worth exploring.
