Benriach The Twelve Single Malt Scotch Whisky
In partnership with Benriach
Speyside distillery Benriach has mastered the art of single malt whisky and this quintessential statement is here to prove it. Three-cask matured for at least 12 years in sherry casks, bourbon barrels, and port casks, it’s then expertly blended to create a sherry-rich and ultra-smooth flavour profile. From each sip comes an exquisite balance between notes of baked fruit, maple honey, and cocoa, with lingering grape accents and a spiced mocha finish. Yum.
Recent winner of Double Gold at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Benriach The Twelve was awarded a whopping 95 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge that very same year. To taste this premium (but nevertheless quite affordable) single malt for yourself is to quickly see what all the fuss is about. Crafted with absolute expertise, it rolls over the palate in meticulous layers and leaves a spicy, sherried impression in its wake. Snag a bottle for your loved one this Valentine’s Day and make sure they share a dram or two—it’s what the holiday is all about. – AU$89.90
