Character Goatson

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.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
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.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
