BenRiach 30 Year
Benriach // Highlands, Scotland
Released in 2006, the BenRiach Thirty Year is a rare bottling of old whisky from the distillery, produced under the regime of the new owner and Master Distiller Billy Walker, who took the reins in 2004. The malt was matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry barrels, with some percentage of the spirit having been finished in ex-sherry. The batch was married for some period of time before filling a mere 3,000 bottles at a generous 50% ABV. This malt is non-chill filtered and contains no added coloring.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
