Benriach is always looking for a versatile blend of casks from all over the world, selected for their exceptional character and flavours, so that they can be added to the whisky. The casks are filled with three different types of spirit: classic, peat or triple distilled. The distillery is well known for its long tradition and is creating a new range of products at the end of 2019, which will bring out the variety and versatility of Benriach's "orchard fruit style" even more, covering the entire spectrum of whisky flavours. The colour palette of the gift boxes and labels is inspired by the natural environment of Speyside. In the early 1970s, Benriach broke the Speyside convention by distilling whisky again in the old 19th century style with malted barley smoked with highland peat. This wood-rich highland peat gives Benriach peat whiskies distinctly sweet and smoky notes. Benriach The Smoky Ten is made from a combination of unpeeled and peated spirits, aged for at least ten years in a combination of Bourbon, Jamaican rum and toasted oak casks. The whisky is then expertly blended to create smooth layers of sun-ripened fruit, aromatic smoke and toasted oak spice that linger in the perfectly balanced sweet and smoky finish.
