Benriach The Sixteen was initially retired from the portfolio in 2016, and the iconic expression now returns with a reformulated recipe. The expression bridges the gap between the 12 and 21-year-old malts in the core lineup. To craft Benriach The Sixteen, Benriach spirit is three cask matured for at least 16 years in bourbon barrels, sherry and virgin oak casks.
The three-cask matured spirit was previously one of Benriach’s most heavily decorated single malts, winning a host of industry accolades including Best Speyside Single Malt at the World Whisky Awards in 2015.
Benriach The Sixteen is bottled at 43% ABV and is available for an SRP of $115 from select retailers from February 2023.
