Benriach’s iconic expression, Benriach The Sixteen, has returned to Australia with a renewed recipe crafted by Master Blender Dr Rachel Barrie and her team.

The Sixteen has been missing from Benriach’s portfolio since 2016 and now the gap between Benraich The Twelve and The Twenty One is closed with this whisky that uses a range of casks from around the world.

Speaking about the whisky Dr Barrie said: “The return of Benriach The Sixteen is a very special moment for the distillery as it is one of our most treasured expressions.

“Our signature Speyside style blossoms at ten years old, finding depth and richer layers of orchard fruit character as it turns sixteen. Our core flavour components of fruit, malt and oak become more concentrated, enriched with age at 16 years old, bringing layers of stone fruit, smooth creamy malt, wild honey and nutty oak spice.”

Initially available through The Whisky Club and bottled at 43 per cent ABV, Benriach The Sixteen is now available nationwide for RRP $165.
