Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 46%

There may be only two years extra ageing on Benriach's The Twelve as compared to the distillery's Original Ten, but just looking at the (natural) colour it's clear that there's a world of difference between the two.

For Benriach The Twelve, Master Blender Rachel Barrie has eschewed the virgin oak casks from The Ten and expertly juggled ex-bourbon, sherry and port casks to create a denser, more sherry-rich style with a richer, deeper character. Bottling at 46% gives Benriach The Twelve a further boost of flavour intensity.

RACHEL BARRIE MASTER BLENDER
"Sherry rich maturation brings incredible depth to this expression and layers of dark berry fruits. It encaptures the flavours of Benriach in the autumn."
