Benrinnes is most commonly known as a component of blends such as J&B, Crawford’s 3 Star, and the Johnnie Walker range. Then, sometime in 2008-2009, they decided that some rather good hidden gems within their warehouses might benefit from further exposure to consumers.

Enter 21 YO Benrinnes Single Malt, an absolute Sherry monster. Distilled back in 1992 and released in 2014 as a part of Diageo's Special Releases, it spent quality time in ex-bodega European oak casks where it received its uncompromising and unquestionably satisfying flavor profile.

It's a real meaty Whisky — that's due to the use of old cast iron worm tubs in the condensation process rather than the use of the more modern copper condensation column seen in most distilleries today

Bottled at 56.9% ABV, this Benrinnes is perfect for those who like their sauce big and bold.

The only real "official" releases of Benrinnes as a single malt is a 15YO, issued as part of the "Flora and Fauna" range -- part of a larger coordinated strategy by various distillers in Scotland -- and a 21YO issued as a part of the "Rare Malt" promotion.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
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.
