1997 Benrinnes 23 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1524628

Yielding a miniscule 89 bottles, this cask of Benrinnes is something to behold. Benrinnes is one of those classic Diageo distilleries that has never been focused on as a single malt due to its importance in their massive portfolio of blended whiskies. When we do see an official release, it’s usually small and expensive. Enter the importance of independent bottlings for those who want to delve into the malt behind the blend. Benrinnes has long been a favorite here at K&L and we rarely get to see barrels as old as this one. In fact, with the exception of an old Chieftains barrel we sold way back in 2011 this is the oldest Benrinnes we’ve ever had the pleasure of stocking. While production today is a touch simpler than that of yesteryear – this barrel came from the days when Benrinnes utilized a partial triple distillation thanks to the six still setup and exceptionally cold worm tubs for cooling their vapors. This production method led to a very unusual combination of fruity and that classic ‘meaty’ or ‘sulfury’ note commonly associate with distilleries like Cragganmore, Mortlach, and Dailuaine. This is a classic old school malt from The Ben.
