Each Cask Edition at Benriach is designed to capture a moment of time in the distillery’s journey toward the pursuit of single malt flavour. This expression is a Port Pipe single malt. A peated dram, it was aged for 11 years and has a yield of only 863 bottles. Distilled in 2009 and bottled in 2020, this 11-year-old single cask malt is as Speyside as can be.
Aromas of dessert come to the fore on this one. Strawberry panna cotta, vanilla cheesecake, and honeyed fruit syrup are all present. The palate continues this decadence, with chocolate velvet cake combining with hints of spiced orange, red apple, and angelica root. The palate is dry, coating, and delicious.
