Cadenhead’s Small Batch Benriach-Glenlivet 19 Year Old Cask Strength 700ml 47.1%
Out of Stock
Distilled in 1996, this vatting yielded 558 bottles.
Cask Type: Bourbon hogshead
At the time this whisky was distilled, Benriach still operated its own floor maltings which were eventually closed in 1988. Cadenhead then purchased the Benriach spirit and laid it to rest for 19 years in bourbon hogsheads before bottling it in 2015 at 47.1% alcohol.
As with all Cadenhead bottlings, the small batch series is non-chill filtered with no added colouring.
Australia only receives a very small allocation of Cadenhead each year and this expression is not one to be missed.
