Many of the bottlings in Single Malts of Scotland have received awards and critical acclaim and with years of experience in selecting casks, you can be sure that the whiskies that are bottled are of the highest quality. With aged casks such as these becoming increasingly difficult to find, each Whisky can be considered unlikely ever to be repeated. Each bottling is one of a limited number, making them perfect for a special gift or the chance to try something truly unique.
This Parcel No. 9 is a 12-year-old Benrinnes on reserve cask, bottled by the independent bottler Elixir Distillers. The bottle belongs to a range of whiskies from The Single Malts of Scotland series, which are released in so-called Parcels. For these whiskies, at least two casks are always blended and bottled in small batches.
This Benrinnes is made from five casks, personally selected by Oliver Chilton, Elixir Distillers' master blender.
Benrinnes is known for its unique style of whisky, which is characterized by a rich, full-bodied flavor and a distinct fruity note. This flavor profile is achieved through the use of a unique distillation process called partial triple distillation, which involves distilling the spirit twice in a traditional copper pot still and then a third time in a small spirit still.
