The BenRiach | Dark Rum Cask Finish - Aged 22 Years
First aged in American bourbon barrels, this Speyside single malt is then finished in barrels that previously held dark Jamaican rum. The result is a whisky which marries BenRiach's characteristic barley and orchard fruit notes with dark sugars and spices from the rum.
On the nose, vanilla syrup and poached pears, dusted with sweet barley grist, combine with oak spice and candied peel to create a warm contrast. On the palate, 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. On the palate, the rich, dark sugars and warm oak spice of the dark rum casks combine perfectly with the orchard fruits and fresh barley character of the classic BenRiach style.
