Benrinnes Rare Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A rather meaty whisky this one, with a thick, creamy mouthfeel owing to the wormtubs used in the process decreasing the copper contact with the spirit. This was matured initially in a second fill Oloroso sherry cask for over eight years then finished for nine months in a first fill Pedro Ximénez cask to amp up the spiciness and the deep, dark winter fruity notes too. .

WINNER OF DOUBLE GOLD AT THE SAN FRANCISCO SPIRITS COMPETITION – THE HIGHEST AWARD A WHISKY CAN GET, NOTED AS BEING ONE OF THE BEST PRODUCTS IN THE WORLD!

This is pretty much the highest award a whisky can get in global competitions…
To quantify that, in the competition’s words that means the Double Gold our Benrinnes 9 Year Old PX Cask Finish has been “awarded to the entries that receive a Gold medal rating by all members of the judging panel; these are among the finest products in the world”.

Incredible. Could not be prouder, especially as we did the whole production of this one from personally selected the cask, having the PX cask made specifically for this whisky and sampling nervously throughout the finishing process until we felt it was perfect for bottling… and clearly the SFSC agreed !

Known as ‘The Ben’, Benrinnes is a unique malt whisky that typically ends up in blends owing to its special character and big flavour profile.
The distillery has an unusual distillation method; the six stills are used to partially triple-distil the make and it used to have its own floor maltings too.
