The Benriach Distillery nestles right in the Heart of Speyside.
BenRiach 22 year old Dark Rum Finish is a new limited production release.
Matured in the traditional style in American Bourbon barrels, this whisky is then ‘finished’ in dark rum barrels, sourced from the Caribbean island of Jamaica. During this second period of maturation, the whisky derives many interesting characteristics specific to the Dark Rum barrel. Bottled at natural colour and non chill filtered.
Nose: Vanilla syrup and poached pears, dusted with sweet barley grist, combine with oak spice and candied peel to create a warm contrast.
Flavour: Ripe yellow plums and nectarines infused with vanilla, ginger and tangerine peel. Wild flower honey combined with stewed barley creates an exceptionally luscious and long finish.
Finish: The rich, dark sugars and warm oak spice of the dark rum casks combine perfectly with orchard fruits and fresh barley character of the classic BenRiach style. A truly exceptional example of the marriage between cask maturation and spirit.
