Benriach The Forty

The Benriach The Forty is the latest addition to the brand’s luxury portfolio. It is one of the oldest peated malt whiskies to be released by a Speyside distillery.

Founded in 1898, Benriach first began distilling peated whisky back in the 70s. The Master Blender Rachel Barrie has combined some of the brand’s rarest malt, aged a minimum of 40 years, to create it. Both bourbon and port casks were used in the maturation process.

“Fine bourbon casks have gradually developed exquisite notes of honeyed pomelo and lush orchard fruits to create Benriach The Forty,” says Barrie. “Over the decades of maturation, the smoky character of peated Benriach spirit refines and mellows, transforming into ripe fruit sweetness. This intricate character is interwoven with dark notes of chocolate, rich plum, and smooth walnut from port casks sourced from the Douro Valley.”

The Benriach The Forty is bottled at 43.5% ABV (87 proof). It is available as a limited release. SRP is $4,500 per 750-ml. bottle.
