From the Benrinnes distillery comes another cracking effort from Douglas Laing's superb Provenance range. This Benrinnes 12 Year Old was distilled in July 2004, aged for 12 years, and bottled in May 2017, with no additional colouring or chill-filtration. 180 bottles were produced.
Nose - Demerara sugar dusts light vanilla bean and toffee apples.
Palate - Juicy orchard fruits layered in honey spark to life with emerging pepper and nutmeg.
Finish - Strong spices temper a sudden surge of buttery sweetness and some herbal notes.
Benrinnes Distillery was established by Peter Mackenzie in 1826 on the north-west shoulder of Ben Rinns Mountain. Following flooding in 1829 the distillery was re-built on a slightly different site in 1835 by John Innes. Benrinnes Distillery is one of the few Scottish distilleries continuing to cool the spirit from its six stills in traditional worm tubs.
