To make Benriach Twelve, Benriach spirit is three cask matured for at least twelve years in sherry casks, bourbon barrels and port casks. The whisky from each cask is then expertly married together to create a smooth, sherry-rich single malt, layered with baked fruit, maple honey and cocoa, perfectly balanced with a lingering sultana and spiced mocha finish.
The appearance is a golden bronze, the nose is full of rich maple honey, cocoa and backed forest fruit. The palate is maraschino cherry, baked orange and hazelnut, with a lingering sultana and spiced mocha finish.
"Sherry rich maturation brings incredible depth to this expression and layers of dark berry fruits. It encaptures the flavours of Benriach in the autumn." - Rachel Barrie - Master Blender
