BenRiach Single Cask Batch 16

BenRiach today unveiled Batch 16 in its popular series of single cask bottlings and this year BenRiach whisky fans will be pleased to hear that there are 24 individual single cask bottlings to seek out, 12 of which will be available in Europe and the other 12 will be available in Asia Pacific, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

Through these single cask batch releases The BenRiach has become well known amongst whisky connoisseurs for its experimental nature and this latest batch of single cask whiskies once again showcases the distillery's multi-faceted range of casks in both unpeated and peated styles.

Batch 16 includes 16 unpeated and 8 peated cask bottlings from a selection of cask types sourced from around the world: Tokaji wine, Oloroso sherry, Pedro Ximénez, Port, Claret, Madeira, Sauternes, Virgin Oak, South African Red Wine, Jamaican Rum, Rioja, Sicilian Marsala, and Bourbon. Each bottle is filled exclusively from one of these individual cask types.

Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie commented on this latest batch saying: "There is no better insight into our intriguing palette of flavour than BenRiach Cask Bottling Batch 16. Featuring 24 different casks, this release provides a rare opportunity to explore the many facets of BenRiach maturation in one batch, something us whisky makers are lucky to do every day. Batch 16 offers the sweet side of Sicilian Marsala wood, smoked plum of the Rioja cask and a dark manuka honey palate of the 30 year old Tokaji; there is a journey and a story behind each cask bottling to be enjoyed by whisky explorers."
