Located in the ‘Heart of Speyside’, in the North-East region of Morayshire, BenRiach displays all the traditional charm of a Speyside distillery. Built by John Duff in 1898, BenRiach draws its water from the Burnside springs located underground, deep below the distillery.
Distillery experiments with several interesting wood finishes and it continues to produce whisky from both peated and non-peated malted barley. The BenRiach portrays its own uniqueness through the particular methods and skills of the men who craft the whisky, the ingredients used, the distinctive copper stills and the high quality casks selected for maturation.
Meaning “time” in Latin, BenRiach 21 Year Temporis Peated Single Malt Scotch Whisky emulates the original character of Speyside malts in the 19th century. An eclectic mix of Bourbon barrels, virgin oak casks, Pedro Ximenez sherry and Oloroso sherry combine result in a multi-faceted peated malt.
NOSE: Caramelised pear and toasted oak spice fuse with honeyed opeat and smoked pinewood.
PALATE: Smooth creamy peat builds to uncover roasted orchard fruits and eucalyptus.
FINISH: Long, with ginger and black pepper leading into a smoky exhale.
