Benriach 15 years old Madeira Finish has been matured in the traditional style in American bourbon barrels, this whisky is then finished in Madeira barrels, sourced from the semi-tropical Portuguese island of Madeira, hundreds of miles off the coast of north-west Africa, in the Atlantic Ocean. During this second period of maturation the whisky derives many interesting characteristics specific to the Madeira barrel.
Just 400 six-packs will be made available world-wide, and the Madeira Finish is part of the first BenRiach 'Wood Finish Series', released November 2006. The other 'finishes' included in the series are Pedro Ximinez Sherry, Dark Rum and Aged Tawny Port.
