This is a 27 years old single malt whisky from Benriach in the typical “Classic Speyside Style”.
Whisky of that age is not on offer in the distillery’s original bottlings. Just a mere 256 bottles are the entire yield of the cask.
The region Speyside
Speyside, a part of the Highlands, enjoys a special status in the whisky world.
The river Spey provided the name. Speyside is neither a geographical nor a specific administrative term but with more than 50 operating malt whisky distilleries it is deemed to be the cradle of the single malt whisky. Situated East of Inverness, South of the Firth of Moray and North of the Grampian Mountains it is home to the most famous of Scottish distilleries. The Speyside whisky’s expression is dominated by fruity notes and is known for its complexity and elegance.
