This limited edition release of The Benriach Twelve celebrates the the Lunar New Year in 2024 and the Year Of The Dragon.
This is the second in the Lunar New Year annual series from Benriach following on from the Year Of
The Rabbit in 2023. The Twelve remains a sherry rich single malt, building on the legacy of Benriach expressions released at this age using predominantly sherry cask maturation. The addition of port cask maturation to this new recipe has intensified notes of baked fruits.
To make Benriach Twelve, Benriach unpeated spirit is three cask matured for at least twelve years in sherry casks, bourbon barrels and port casks. The whisky from each cask is then expertly married together to create a smooth, sherry-rich single malt layered with baked fruit, maple honey and cocoa, perfectly balanced with a lingering sultana and spiced mocha finish.
