  • Aroma: Butterscotch and crème caramel lead the way. Maple syrup and pecan appear with layers of cream sherry and caramel fudge cake.
  • Palate: Dark manuka honey and cream sherry on buttered pancakes lead to gingerbread and treacle.
  • Finish: Caramelised ginger and pecan toffee remain in the long, sumptuous finish.

BENRIACH 13 Year Old 2005 Cask Pedro Ximenez Butt

Batch 16 single casks have arrived into Australia in limited allocations.

BenRiach is a distillery that we are lucky to enjoy in the 21st century. Built in 1887 as a sister distillery to Longmorn, it was a low-profile victim of the Pattinson Crash and closed just three years after ground was initially broken in 1900. It would take another 65 years until new owners Glenlivet would re-open the site, then to help with the malt needs of Longmorn. Although it enjoyed a sustained period of operation during those optimistic decades to come, BenRiach was largely consigned to blends and single malts very rarely seen.

The end seemed inevitable when the distillery was once again closed in 2002, deemed surplus to requirements, but the 2004 purchase by a Billy Walker-involved consortium has seen a remarkable rejuvenation for the brand. The BenRiach Distilling Company, now under expert guidance of Brown-Forman and Master Blender Rachel Barrie, has not only introduced this otherwise-overlooked distillery to single malt lovers around the world, but also painted bright futures for later acquisitions GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh.
