Batch 13 of the firm’s single cask range, bottled in June, includes classic Speyside-style whiskies, peated expressions and wood finishes, such as tawny Port, Burgundy, Pedro Ximenez Sherry, Claret, Madeira and Tokaj.

Whiskies in the series have been non-chill-filtered, bottled at natural colour and individually hand-numbered.

The oldest variant, cask 7028, was distilled in 1975 and aged in a Sherry butt. Bottled at 53% abv, the peated whisky is said to have a flavour of plum skins, dark raisins, yellow pear and smoke.

“Our much-anticipated batches allow us to identify very special casks in our inventory and every single cask bottling is an exclusive limited release,” said BenRiach master distiller Billy Walker.

“I have selected these twelve casks because they are outstanding and full of personality.”

Earlier this month, The BenRiach Distillery Company unveiled two new whiskies – the BenRiach 17 Year Old Pedro Ximenez Sherry Wood Finish and the BenRiach 21 Year Old Tawny Port Wood Finish.

The firm was acquired by US-based distiller Brown-Forman, owner of the Jack Daniel’s brand, in June this year.
