16 years old
Part of the First Editions collection from Hunter Laing, this 16 year-old single malt made by Benrinnes was aged solely in a sherry butt and bottled at 55.1% ABV. The nose holds notes of caramel and rhubarb, and the palate brings flavours like cinnamon and toffee apples. The finish is dryer, with notes of coffee and spice. Only 270 bottles are available worldwide.
Built in 1826, at the foot of the Rinnes mountain, the distillery was washed away by flood 3 years later. Rebuilt, bankrupted twice and reopened only to be then burned to the ground in 1859. The new make spirit is robust due to short neck stills and worm tub condensers. A rarity in Scotland single malt, Benrinnes was partially triple distilled until 2007.
