27 Year Old 1991 Rum Cask #1865 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Only very special barrels are chosen by Dr. Rachel Barrie to enter BenRiach’s highly sought-after single cask releases. Her selections for Batch 16 are truly exceptional…
Cask #1865 – an exotic rum barrel – was filled with liquid distilled in 1991. There it remained until bottling in over a quarter of a century later in 2019. Yielding just 194 super-rare bottles at cask strength, this 27 Year Old is a one-of-a-kind. It’s hard to find whisky that has been finished in a rum cask, but one that has spent 27 years aging in a rum cask is an almost unheard-of rarity. The tropical influence of the wood manifests in notes of mango, guava, papaya, satsuma, grapefruit, coconut, chocolate and pineapple rum cake, layered on top of BenRiach’s classic honey, granola and orchard fruit. This liquid sunshine is a holiday to the Caribbean for the senses.
Although BenRiach has a long and illustrious history that can be traced back to 1898, it has been the period since 2004 – when it became independent after being purchased by The BenRiach Distillery Company Limited – that has seen a procession of truly excellent peated and unpeated malt whiskies leave its front doors. That run of award-winning quality has continued under the watchful eye of new owners Brown-Forman and their talented Master Blender Rachel Barrie, who cut her teeth at the Scotch Whisky Research Institute, and two industry heavyweights: Glenmorangie and Bowmore. In short, new releases from this hidden gem of a distillery are not to be missed.
