About BenRiach 12 Year Old The Smoky Twelve Scotch Whisky

While distilling was stopped, Benriach continued producing floor maltings, supplying malted barley to their neighbor, Longmorn Distillery. It wasn't until 1965 when the distillery restarted the production of its own malt whisky, responding to the boom in the industry as a result of growing global demand for Scotch whisky. After changing several hands, Benriach is currently owned by Brown-Forman Corporation after the acquisition in 2016.

In the early 1970s, Benriach started to explore peated distillation, making some of its whisky in the old, 19th century style using malted barley smoked with Highland peat. Another milestone came in 1994, when the distillery, previously only making spirit for blends, launched its first ever single malt, a 10-year-old edition. Four years later, Benriach began making small batches of triple distilled spirit, adding the third style to its family of award-winning Speyside single malts, which now consists of classic unpeated, Highland peated and triple distilled whisky. All three styles of whisky are kept in the Warehouse 13, which is the oldest original dunnage warehouse from 1898, maturing in an eclectic range of casks, sourced from all over the world. Benriach’s warehouses hold an exceptional collection of single malts dating back to 1966.

The Smoky Twelve is a 12-year-old edition of Benriach’s peated Speyside single malt Scotch whisky, crafted from a combination of unpeated and peated spirit. The whisky is matured for at least twelve years in three different types of casks: bourbon barrels, sherry casks, and Marsala wine casks, and then expertly married together to create a smooth, creamy single malt.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
