BenRiach PX Albariza Aged 22 Years
Hidden away in the depths of our traditional dunnage warehouses at the BenRiach distillery lies an eclectic collection of whisky in wood types from all around the world. BenRiach is a rich, fruit-laden Speyside Single Malt, imbued with an abundance of orchard fruits in the spirit character. This style matures extremely well, prone to quickly taking on oak aromatics. This has led to a great tradition wood finishing at the distillery and the release of one of our oldest ever, BenRiach Pedro Ximénez Aged 22 Years.
UNIQUE TO SPEYSIDE
Back in the 1970s, BenRiach made the bold move of distilling a proportion of its whisky using peated malted barley; marking a return to the original Speyside character and flavour of malts made during the nineteenth century. This gives us the unique opportunity in the region to be the only distillery releasing PEATED Speyside spirit of this age.
DOUBLE CASK MATURATION
Originally matured in American oak casks, the whisky is then finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks for enhanced richness. Bottled at natural colour and non chill filtered, BenRiach Pedro Ximénez Aged 22 Years is a balanced marriage of just 12 individual casks from the distillery.
As peated spirit matures it naturally mellows and becomes sweeter on the palate. This expression’s long years of maturation in our dunnage warehouses has therefore enhanced the sweet peat character of BenRiach, mellowing the smoke character and enriching the layers of sherry sweetness.
