A Delicious Dozen on a mission to conquer your taste buds.

In the early 1970s, Benriach broke convention in Speyside by returning to distilling batches in the old, 19th Century style, using peated barley malt to give its Whiskies a distinctly rich Highland profile. Since then, Benriach has focused on producing three types of Whisky: classic unpeated, Highland peated, and triple distilled. Using only the most eclectic selection of casks from around the world to test the limits of a Single Malt, their Whisky masters have been making some of the richest, most multi-layered Whiskies in Speyside.

The 2020 Smoky Twelve is a part of the new core range that explores those limits. Featuring peated and unpeated Single Malts that have been matured in Bourbon, Sherry, and Marsala Wine casks for at least 12 years before being expertly married into one rich, creamy smooth masterblend layered with ripened fruit, aromatic smoked sweetness, and warming Oak spice, lingering into a cocoa and orange smoked finish, all in perfect balance.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
