Darkness 14 Year Old ‘Benrinnes’ Pedro Ximenez Octave 50cl 55%
Out of Stock
Series 3 – Limited Edition
Cask type: Sherry finish
This whisky is brought to us by independent bottlers of sherry finished whiskies; Darkness- owned by Atom Brands, the team behind That Boutique-y Whisky Company and Master of Malt.
With this expression, Darkness has taken Benrinnes spirit, aged for 14 years and then given it a final 3+ month evolution in hand coopered, fresh, first-fill Oloroso sherry cask octaves. These smaller 64L vessels allow for a greater conversation between wood and whisky creating maximum richness and depth of flavour.
Welcome to a new level of flavour intensity – Welcome to Darkness.
About Benrinnes Distillery
Benrinnes is located in Speyside and was founded in 1826. The distillery is still active today, even though the past two centuries have seen it face devastating fires, floods, two world wars and financial hardship. Despite the long history of Benrinnes, there has only been two official bottlings, with the remainder of their spirit used in blends, notably Johnnie Walker and J&B or purchased by independent bottlers. The distillery is currently under Diageo ownership.
