Proof66 Notes

BenRiach 12yr Sherry Wood is aged, as is clear from the label, in sherry casks. The barrels originate from Spain previously holding either Oloroso or Pedro Ximinez sherry... a common but respected practice in the scotch whisky world. It is bottled at a slightly higher 92 proof relative to the 86 more typically seen in single malt scotch.

The BenRiach Distillery—which translates as "hill of the red deer"—was founded by John Duff in 1898 using locally grown barley and spring water drawn from the site of the distillery itself. They are one of the few distilleries that still use a malting floor in their production. BenRiach has been "very quietly" producing scotch since 1898. The distillery has had several owners but was purchased from Chivas by its own ownership group the "BenRiach Distillery Company" in 2004 and has since been proud of its independent ownership. Despite changing ownership, they claim "row upon row" of uninterrupted aging casks reaching back 40 years.
