BENRIACH DISTILLERY, TENNESSEE WHISKEY CASK NO. 6248, 11-YEAR SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
Over the last 15 years BenRiach has been one of the world's most heralded single malts, producing some of the most eclectic and sought-after whiskies coming out of Speyside—the unofficial center of the single malt universe and home to such iconic names as Macallan, Glenlivet and Balvenie. Considering the distillery was closed as recently as 2002, the turnaround has been remarkable, with BenRiach quickly being named Distillery of the Year by Malt Advocate in 2007 and awarded the Global Whisky Distiller of the Year by the World Whiskies Awards in 2015. With an uninterrupted inventory dating back over 40 years, the distillery is setting the example in cutting-edge innovation as well as producing unconventional Speyside-rarities—thus creating a demand that has whisky lovers and collectors gobbling up their limited production. As enthusiasts and critics expect more artisanal bottles and exceptionalism from their spirits, BenRiach has risen to meet this demand with thrilling single cask collections. Enter today’s BenRiach bottling—a never-to-be-replicated single malt Scotch, with only 150 bottles produced, that’s available only for our Concierge customers.
In 2009, a single cask was set aside that could evolve into a whisky with exceptional character and singularity: a barrel that previously held Tennessee Whiskey. After aging in BenRiach’s cellar for 11 years, the single malt was hand-selected by current Master Blender Rachel Barrie, a member of Whisky Magazine’s Hall of Fame, and has been bottled at cask strength and left non-chill filtered. The spirit is a blockbuster 115.2 proof, yet it’s a beautifully complex dram, with aromas of apricots, nectarines, maple syrup and vanilla custard. The fruit-forward character of the spirit is amplified by the maturation in the ex-Tennessee Whiskey barrel, imparting sweet notes of vanilla, honeycomb and macadamia nut brittle. The barrel produced a minuscule 150 bottles, hand numbered and only available through Concierge Sales—making for a genuine collector’s item. This one is for whisky treasure hunters, so place your order today before we sell out!
