• Benriach 7 YR Octave Bottling Single Malt Scotch Whisky

This Speyside Benriach comes from a peated malted barley, then finished in an sherry Octave (smaller) cask, mixing aromas of medicinal, nougat and spice. The palate brings dried fruits and vanilla, typical of Benriach whisky but with the added peat note coming in before the barrel spice finish. Delightful! D&M Tasting Notes

For several years already the independent bottler Duncan Taylor has got The Octave whiskies in its portfolio. Those releases are finished in a special way: After being matured in “normal” casks the single malt or single grain whisky spend some months in very small casks of 50 litres volume named “Octaves” to round out aromatically. The contact surface between whisky and wood is much bigger at those small casks relative to their volume than it is at classic Sherry butts, hoghsheads or American standard barrels. So maturation of whisky takes part quicker but the angels’ share is bigger as well.

Distilled: 2011, Bottled: 2018 78 Bottles. 53.2% ABV Peated. Cask# 7421233 Sherry finish.
