A Story-telling Scotch.
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.
BenRiach Excl. Cask 1996 is one of 626 bottles from the 11th batch of Single Cask releases from the experimental BenRiach. An 18 year old single malt which was distilled in 1996 and finished in a Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon. Bottled September 2014.
We call this the story-telling Scotch. Why? Sit back with good friends, with quality glasses and a dram, and share a memorable experience. Nothing in the whole wide World can beat that. Cheers.

Member Reviews and Ratings of BenRiach Excl. Cask 1996
If you put the correct bottling date in your specs it would be rather better!!
This malt was exceptional. It was a bit hot for the flavor profile. This one needs a bit of air to open up. Once aired out the favors are very defined while well integrated. I got prunes, raisins, dark cherries, vanilla, oily waxy, black pepper, honey, oak, and heather on the taste. The nose was prunes, raisins, fish oil, dark fruit, lemon zest Overall this is a treat that should be tried. It is a favorite to me
