BenRiach release triple cask matured Cask Strength Batch 2

Whisky explorers searching for a glimpse into the spirit of BenRiach distillery have the chance to experiment with this emerging Speyside single malt in its most nondiluted form, with the release of BenRiach Cask Strength – Batch 2. Following on from the successful release of Cask Strength – Batch 1, BenRiach distillery Master Blender Rachel Barrie has hand-picked a small selection from 2006, 2007 and 2008 to create this rich, smooth, triple-cask matured expression.

BenRiach Cask Strength Batch 2

This single malt continues BenRiach’s reputation for rich, innovative cask maturation by combining cask strength whisky matured in bourbon barrels, Oloroso sherry casks and virgin oak hogsheads. It has a richer and smoother taste profile to its award-winning predecessor, BenRiach Cask Strength – Batch 1, which won a Silver Outstanding award at the International Wine and Spirits Competition in 2016.

Cask Strength Batch 2 is BenRiach in its most unadulterated state. At cask strength 60.6%, the drinker can taste straight from the vat, without chill-filtration, water or colour addition.

Richly matured bourbon, Oloroso and virgin oak casks take the drinker on an adventure through the BenRiach Speyside warehouses. To the eye a golden summer harvest, to the nose toffee apple with a ginger spiced zing, and to the tongue layers of crème-caramel, chocolate and lime-glazed nectarine. At cask strength, the drinker can explore every layer of flavour, and choose whether or not to add water to taste. BenRiach Cask strength Batch 2 is for those who want to experiment with whisky taste and explore for themselves.”
