BenRiach Single Cask Batch 14


30th August 2017
BenRiach release Batch 14 of its popular single cask bottlings.

BenRiach 2005 Single Cask No. 2565BenRiach Distillery today released Batch 14 of its popular single cask bottlings. Notably the BenRiach Batch 14 is a smaller and younger but no less interesting outturn of 7 single casks that were all bottled in June 2017 and will all soon be available from specialist whisky shops such as Master of Malt.

The 7 single casks in the BenRiach Batch 14 have been hand-selected by BenRiach's Whisky Maker Rachel Barrie for the unique taste experience each one offers. The release consists of 5 peated and 2 unpeated single malts, each of which have been fully matured in a single cask, no cask finishes in this batch and interestingly this Batch 14 is relatively young in comparison to previous batches with the youngest in this release being 9 year old and the oldest 12 year old which should make it more accessible to whisky drinkers regards the price.

As always the variety sets BenRiach’s single cask series apart, including whiskies in the classic Speyside style, peated and unpeated expressions matured in a variety of casks such as First Fill Oloroso Sherry, First Fill Virgin Oak, First Fill Port Pipe, Port Pipe and First Fill Marsala Hogshead.

As with all of the BenRiach single cask releases they are individually hand-numbered, non chill filtered, bottled at natural colour and presented in a gift tube, each single cask is truly unique.

Whisky Maker Rachel Barrie describes Batch 14 as "an exciting and bold choice of casks," Rachel added, "The single malt whiskies selected in this most recent BenRiach cask bottling reflect the innovative and pioneering philosophy of The BenRiach Distillery when it comes to making exceptional Scotch whisky."
