BenRiach reintroduces Sherried 12yo whisky

Speyside distillery BenRiach has reintroduced a 12-year-old Sherry cask-matured Scotch whisky to its core range.

BenRiach Sherry Wood Aged 12 Years has been made by combining full Sherry cask maturation with Pedro Ximénez and oloroso Sherry cask finishing. The whisky is said to have “layers of fruit sweetness and toasted oak spice with a luscious dessert-like finish”. Bottled at 46% abv, the 12-year-old contains no caramel colouring and is non-chill-filtered. Master blender Rachel Barrie said: “BenRiach Sherry Wood Aged 12 Years uses three-way Sherry wood maturation, a creative approach where each facet is combined in harmony to deliver a rich and balanced taste. “The result – a multi-layered single malt Scotch whisky with notes of fruit cocktail, lilting spices, honeyed caramel and chocolate sweetness – an enrichment of BenRiach’s signature sweet, fruit-laden style. “This luscious single malt Scotch whisky takes pride of place in the award-winning range made by our unconventional Speyside distillery.” BenRiach Sherry Wood Aged 12 Years is available from specialist retailers worldwide for an RRP of £43 (US$56.11).
