1975 Benriach Batch 13 Single Cask #7028 Sherry Butt/Peated 40 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$1,250.00 Bottle
  • ABV 53%

Benriach's Batch 13 consists of 12 single cask releases from 16 to 40 years old, demonstrating an eclectic range of expressions for which they've become renowned. This year we have whiskies in the classic Speyside style, peated expressions aas well as wood finishes, such as Tawny Port, Burgundy, PX Sherry, Claret, Madeira and Tokaj. Individually hand-numbered, non chill-filtered and bottled at natural colour, all twelve casks have been hand-selected by Managing Director and Master Distiller Billy Walker, who describes them as “sensational” and adds: “Our much-anticipated batches allow us to identify very special casks in our inventory, and every single cask bottling is an exclusive limited release. I have selected these twelve casks because they are outstanding and full of personality.”

Some of the highlights include the oldest, 1975 #7028, at 53.0% vol, matured in a Sherry Butt. The peated spirit is rich amber in colour. On the nose, it bursts with tropical fruits and ripe banana with the most distant hint of campfire embers, while the taste is of plum skins, dark raisins and hints of yellow pear which hold a robust peat reek. Rich vintage leather and old oaky characters add a classic aged depth.

The youngest, 1999 # 5043, at 56.4% vol, is of a rich antique-gold hue and has been matured in an Oloroso Sherry Puncheon. On the nose, there are fresh aromas of golden sultanas, candied peel and white pepper spice, while on the tongue there are delightful notes of cinnamon-spiced honey and rum-soaked sultanas. Peppery oak and crisp green apple skin add a terrific and vibrant contrast.

A third, the 1994 cask # 4004, at 55.1% vol, has been matured in a Tokaj Hogshead, which suggests it will be much sought-after. On the nose this delicious Hungarian cask lends fresh wood smoke, boiled sweets and vanilla, which balance perfectly with a crisp citrus twist. The taste is a combination of ripe orchard fruits and heather honey, holding touches of crisp oak and vibrant citrus zest and finished with a sweet campfire peat smoke.

Other expressions in the range boast of dark orange marmalade, sweet barbeque smoke, sour plums, rum-soaked raisins, heather honey and malt loaf.
