The BenRiach distillery, one of the few independent Scottish distilleries left, was founded in 1898 by John Duff. The distillery has largely remained inactive during the 20th century since it was mothballed in 1900 due to the collapse of a major Scotch Whisky purchaser. It was reopened again in 1965, but remained struggling until 2004 when it was acquired by an independent consortium. The company is now lead by two South African funding partners, Geoff Bell and Wayne Keiswetter, and Scotch expert Billy Walker.

In the Heart of Speyside, between the barley fields and the foothills of the Grampian Mountains, lies this famous Scottish distillery. As for all great distilleries they use mostly, if not exclusively, resources that are locally available. The grains used for production grow all around the distillery and the water is drawn through the rocks from deep below.

This 10YO has all of the characteristics you’d expect from a classic Speyside Whisky. Spending time in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, this single malt is teeming with vibrant fruit-filled flavors, and warm notes of oak spices and green apple as well as the signature peach and apricot flavors characteristic of BenRiach. But it doesn’t stop there, this delectable Whisky also features notes of banana, with a hint of aniseed, lemon zest, and barley. An incredible orchestra of flavors, this 10YO has a depth and complexity you might not expect from a dram its age. So be a dear, treat your tongue.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Ratings & Reviews
Sweet berried baking spice with a cereal cap. I found the finish to be thin with a hint of vanilla ice cream. Not overly complex and is the reason I will keep coming for more. A 10 yr not to be trifled with.
A lot going on in this delicious whiskey
milk chocolatey. Pleasing easy drinker.
Amaretto cherry on the nose. No length in the mouth, but lots going down
Light and flavorful, crisp yet able to be unpacked
Amazingly smooth and complex. Hard to find another scotch of this quality near the price range.
Smoke and vanilla, dry nice finish!!
Nice smoke in the nose. Vanilla and fruit up front with smoke quickly following and a dry oak finish. Not complex, has some heat. Enjoy a tasty campfire in your mouth! Price point is high. Shop around.
Remarkably balanced - and I say that in the best possible spirit. Slightly oily/creamy mouthfeel; sweet on the front, savoury on the back. Medium finish and mild heat - nothing overwhelming. Really benefits from judgement over time: let it sit for a bit and sip slowly.
Very smooth and had a nice finish. My husband liked it better than his current brand.
First scotch purchase, and was not disappointed. Smoother than expected and the taste was great.
Incredibly smooth. Apple flavor with hints of smoke really make for a great single malt.
Wife bought me a bottle in NYC a few months back and I finally got around to opening it. After tasting it for the first time, not sure why I waited so long. Outstanding flavor, character, and depth. One of the best values out there for an outstanding dram at at great price. Get it while you can would be my advice.
