Benriach’s previous owner, Billy Walker, yes – the same one who now owns Glenallachie, was known to always love experimenting with various Port wine casks. This is an example of a cask that was probably distilled and filled under his administration but masterfully crafted and selected to be bottled at cask strength under the genius Dr. Rachel Barrie after 15 years. The deep red colors of a port wine oak can be seen imparted well to the whisky. Deep red-fruited port characteristics combined with Speyside attributes will easily transport your senses to sipping on a dark port wine and nibbling on prunes.
