The Original Ten

Benriach’s flagship expression is matured for a minimum of 10 years inside a combination of bourbon barrels, sherry casks, and virgin oak. From the expert marriage between these whiskies comes a smooth and multi-layered profile of orchard fruit, honeyed malt, toasted oak, and traces of smoke. Those who can’t attend the festival can score a bottle through Dan Murphy’s to experience this classic for themselves.

The Smoky Ten

This acclaimed whisky is crafted from a mix of unpeated and peated spirit and matured for at least 10 years in a combination of bourbon barrels, Jamaican rum casks, and toasted virgin oak. The resulting single malt rides in on balanced waves of sunripe fruit, aromatic smoke, and oak spice before closing out on a sweet and smoky finish.

The Twelve

This unpeated spirit spends a minimum of 12 years inside sherry casks, bourbon barrels, and port casks. The whiskies are then married to perfection, resulting in a sherry-rich single malt of impeccable nuance and character. Notes of baked fruit, maple honey, and cocoa give way to lingering raisin and a spiced mocha finish.

Benriach 21yo

Expertly aged for a minimum of 21 years, this iconic single malt blends whisky from a combination of bourbon barrels, virgin oak, Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, and red wine casks. The taste balances creamy layers of chocolate and vanilla with the distillery’s traditional fruit orchard style to create a symphony of toe-curling flavour.
