A rich and complex 16-year-old single malt from Benriach, The Sixteen has been matured in a combination of 3 casks: ex-bourbon, ex-sherry and virgin oak casks. The whisky of each is then expertly married together to create a richly balanced malt, layered with stone fruit, creamy hazelnuts and overtones of fragrant spice, with finishing notes of wild honey and candied peel.
Nose: baked apple and creamy hazelnuts malt with overtones of ginger-spiced apricot and wild honey.
Palate: Spiced stewed apple, stone fruit and mellow nutty oak, with honeyed malt and candied peel.
Finish: wild honey and woody, remnants of green apple sweetness and a few grains of salt.
