    In this episode we go into a lot more detail about our DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL win at the San Fran Spirits Competition, and talk about the behind the scenes story of this whisky's creation. 

    BENRINNES RARE CASK SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
    Available here: https://greatdrams.com/product/benrinnes-rare-cask-single-malt-scotch-whisky/ 
    A rather meaty whisky this one, with a thick, creamy mouthfeel owing to the wormtubs used in the process decreasing the copper contact with the spirit. This was matured initially in a second fill Oloroso sherry cask for over eight years then finished for nine months in a first fill Pedro Ximénez cask to amp up the spiciness and the deep, dark winter fruity notes too.
    Distillery: Benrinnes
    Region: Speyside
    Age: 9 Years Old
    Distilled: January 2012
    Bottled: February 2021
    Cask type: 8 years in a second fill ex-Oloroso cask, 9 months finishing in a first fill ex-PX Sherry cask
    ABV: 48.2%
    Limited: 333 bottles globally
