BenRiach Single Cask Batch 15

BenRiach Distillery has unveiled Batch 15 in its popular series of single cask bottlings. The distillery is known for its experimental nature and this latest batch of single cask whiskies demonstrates this, once again offering whisky connoisseurs a multi-faceted range of casks in both unpeated and Highland peated styles. Batch 15 includes 17 casks: 11 unpeated and 6 Highland peated - an eclectic mix including port pipes, moscatel hogsheads, sauternes barriques, rum barrels and virgin oak. Each bottle is filled exclusively from one of these individual casks.

As with all of the BenRiach single cask releases they are individually hand-numbered, non chill filtered, natural colour and presented in a gift tube, each single cask is truly unique. Varying from 9 to 26 years old Batch 15 alcohol strength ranges from 53.1% to 61.7% ABV.

Announcing the release of BenRiach Single Cask Batch 15, BenRiach Distillery Master Blender Rachel Barrie, said:

"Batch 15 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. From the sweet side of Marsala wood to the exotic fruity side of Rum and the barbecued smokiness of charred American Virgin oak, there is a cask to suit every whisky lover’s palate. Now’s the time to explore, take your pick and find the cask you most enjoy!"
