Continuing its journey pushing the boundaries of malt alchemy, BenRiach distillery has released Batch 15 of its cask bottling programme.
BenRiach holds some of the most experimental casks in Speyside, making it uniquely placed to offer a multi-faceted range of casks in both unpeated and Highland peated styles. Each year, Master Blender Rachel Barrie selects a number of distinct casks which celebrate the distillery’s creative distilling and maturation heritage.
Batch 15 includes 17 casks: 11 unpeated and 6 Highland peated – an eclectic mix including port pipes, moscatel hogsheads, sauternes barriques, rum barrels and virgin oak. Each bottle is filled exclusively from one of these individual casks.
Nose: Smoked mint and blackcurrant on a forest campfire of cassia bark and orris root, with hog roast served with bramley apple sauce.
Palate: Grilled red grape smothered in olive oil with smoked angelica and star anise, progressing to a charred apple and maple finish.
