New BenRiachs

Postby Rob Allanson » Thu Nov 19, 2009 10:47 am

BenRiach has launched two new limited edition expressions from its Speyside distillery - BenRiach Moscatel Wood Finish and BenRiach Gaja Barolo Wood Finish.

It has released just 300 cases of each.

Both have been finished in wine barrels and during maturation the whisky interacts with the oak wood, deriving a number of distinctive flavours and aromas.

Both are non-chill filtered, of natural colour and are bottled at 46% volume.

For its second period of maturation, the Moscatel Wood Finish is finished in wine barrels sourced from Portugal while the Gaja Barolo matures in barrels from the Barolo wine production area in Italy's Piedmont region.
