BENNACHIE - 21 Year OldVatted Malt Whisky
Created unashamedly for connoisseurs with some of the rarest malt whiskies found on Speyside.
The reddish-gold colour bears witness to the exceptional maturity of the whiskies that make up Bennachie 21 Year Old. Each whisky has spent over two decades, and some much longer, in specially selected oak casks until they are judged to have reached the peak of their maturity. During this time, the wood breathes and a considerable proportion of the contents of each cask, known as the "angel's share" evaporates into thin air. But it's a sacrifice worth making, because each whisky mellows over time, developing its individual flavour and full potential.
Released when they have come of age for use in Bennachie 21 Year Old, these malts have been expertly chosen to embrace the best characteristics of the Speyside region. Aromas of vanilla, sandalwood and spice are present on the nose.
The taste is rich and full-flavoured with an aromatic tang and nuances of passion fruit. The finish is medium dry and exceptionally long.
