Benrinnes 12 Year Old 2003 (cask 13009) - The First Editions (70cl, 46%) ***sold***
This single cask expression from Benrinnes distillery in Speyside was distilled in 2003 and bottled aged 12 years 2016 for The First Editions range from Hunter Laing & Co.
Only 348 bottles have been produced.
Until 2007, Benrinnes had a unique triple distillation process that resulted in a single malt highly prized by blenders for its distinct "meaty" quality. So much so in fact, that none was spared for an official distillery bottling until United Distillers introduced the 15 year old Flora & Fauna release. Thankfully, the distillery has always featured in the catalogues of independent bottlers, giving ample opportunity to experience this sought after single malt.
