From Brown Forman:

"Donated by Brown Forman Corporation in support of The Beatson Cancer Charity.

Founded in 1898, Benriach Distillery has long been the home of an ingenious and artistic approach to whisky distilling and cask maturation. Today, our creative team of whisky makers continue to explore the flavour possibilities of our  hand-crafted Speyside award winning Single Malts. Unique to Speyside back in the 1970s, Benriach made the bold move of distilling a proportion of its whisky using peated malted barley; marking a return to the original Speyside character and flavour of malts made during the nineteenth century.

Colour: Golden straw
Nose: Sweet honey with vanilla, then mellow peat and bog myrtle notes.
Palate: Mellow peat smoke with a barley and leather front, followed by waves of toast and tropical fruit"
