Announcing the release of BenRiach Cask Bottling Release – Master Blender Rachel Barrie, said:
“Batch 15 provides a rare opportunity to explore the many facets of BenRiach maturation in one batch, something us whisky makers are lucky to do every day. From the sweet side of Marsala wood to the exotic fruity side of Rum and the barbecued smokiness of charred American Virgin oak, there is a cask to suit every whisky lover’s palate. Now’s the time to explore, take your pick and find the cask you most enjoy!”
All whiskies in Batch 15 are non-chill-filtered with no added colour and are individually hand-numbered.
