Winning bid: £55.00
Lot number: 096-04295

After being founded by John Duff & Co in 1897, the distillery was mothballed for 65 years with only its floor maltings being used for the Longmorn distillery next door. After experiencing great success under the ownership of Billy Walker and his partners, it won Distillery of the Year from Malt Advocate magazine in 2007 and has received rave reviews for its peated and un-peated expressions alike.

The distillery was purchased by Brown-Forman in 2016 - the same year they bought GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh - and in 2017 Rachel Barrie took over as master blender.

This BenRiach is aged initially in ex-bourbon barrels then given a period of time in Jamaican rum casks. The finished whisky has an extra layer of sweet fruity flavour, thanks to the rum casks.

Age: 15 Years Old

Cask Type: American Bourbon Oak and Dark Rum Wood finish

46% ABV / 70cl

Please note minor denting to tube lid.
