The new release celebrates the sixth anniversary of the first bottling of BenRiach under its new independent owners. Master Distiller Billy Walker has selected ten highly distinctive casks from 1976 to 1993 for BenRiach aficionados.

Bottled in July 2010, the ten are all  cask strength, natural colour and non chill-filtered. They are individually numbered and presented in a gift tube.

    For this kind of bottle it, don’t be patient:)

    Tasted some of these during the Witch in Den Haag. The 1979 truly was an excellent malt, looking at the the fruity/vanilla side of Benriach.

    In the UK you can probably buy them in the next two weeks. In the rest of the world, it usually takes a bit longer. In Belgium, I guess they won’t be widely available until the GlenDronach cask in a van tour.
