Matured in the traditional style in American bourbon barrels, this whisky is then ‘finished’ in Sauternes casks, sourced from the Bordeaux region of France. During this second period of maturation, the whisky interacts with the oak wood and derives a number of additional interesting flavours and aromas. With only a limited quantity released world wide, the 16 years old Sauternes Finish is the latest addition to the BenRiach ‘Wood Finish Series’.46% ABV
