Award-winning scotch whisky distillery Benriach on Thursday announced the release of the Benriach Cask Edition collection, the first single-cask single malt scotch whisky bottlings the distillery has ever made available in the U.S. The collection comprises three expressions, each drawn from casks selected by Master Blender Rachel Barrie.

“Our ‘sleeping beauties’, as we often call these casks, continue to be sourced from all over the world, enabling us to creatively explore the full flavor possibilities of Speyside Single Malt,” Barrie said in a news release. “Each cask will tell its own story of a journey of flavor where the spirit is married with oak, over years and through the seasons, to really create a unique moment in time never to be repeated again.”

Each whisky is bottled at cask strength.

“From the Marsala Wine Hogshead cask bringing out clementine, apricot, nectarine and cherry blossom flavors, to the Pedro Ximénez Puncheon with intense notes of heather honey, butterscotch and sultana, each cask allows us to explore a different aspect of Benriach’s fruit-laden character,” Barrie said.
