Note: This is a back release and as such the boxes may have varying degrees of minor bruising and/or scuffing.

There aren't many 25-year old single cask bottlings around. Part of the seventeen barrels making up Benriach's annual Batch release (batch 15), cask #979 previously contained Port and yielded 275 bottles when emptied back in 2018. Being distilled in '92 under Seagrams ownership (and before Benriach existed as a single malt label!), this would've contained a portion of the distillery's own floor-malted barley. The maltings were de-commissioned in 1998 and the distillery was mothballed by October 2002. Very limited stocks.

Notes from the producers... Colour: Tawny brown with gold highlights. Nose: Honeysuckle and rosehip tea with traces of camomile, orange blossom and cocoa leaf. Taste: Nectarine, lemon peel and yellow plum drying out to lingering rooibos, burdock and caraway. 53.9% Alc./Vol. Non Chill filtered.
