Mossburn Vintage Casks No 11 Benrinnes 2007 is a third party bottling of Speyside Single Malt Whisky. It is part of Mossburn’s Vintage Casks range, a collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks. This is a cask strength bottling.
Mossburn Distillers & Blenders is a brand new Scotch whisky project owned by Marussia Beverage which is part of the empire controlled by Swedish billionaire Frederik Paulsen. The company is headquartered at Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders on the site of the former Jedforest Hotel. Their new distillery, called Reivers Distillery, will be one of the first new distilleries to be built in the Borders for over 150 years. Mossburn have also established Torabhaig Distillery on the Isle of Skye, which opened in 2017 (the second distillery on Skye after Highland Park). The parent company also own the Kaikyo Distillery in Japan which produces Hatozaki whiskies. Not content with this, they have also created the peaty Caisteal Chamuis whisky range. The first Mossburn bottlings were releases in 2017.
Building a whisky distillery and waiting for whisky to come online (the spirit has to be aged for at least 3 years before it can even be called whisky) is a long term project. So, in the meantime, Mossburn have started the ball rolling by bottling a small collection of ever-changing single malt whiskies and two permanent blended malts, an Island and Speyside, with bespoke cask bills. There are also some very limited occasional single cask bottlings.
The Benrinnes Distillery is located in Aberlour and was founded in 1826. It is a whisky highly prized by blenders and is rarely bottled as a single malt, although there was a semi official Flora and Fauna range bottling from Diageo (the current owners from 1997).
Mossburn Vintage Casks No 11 Benrinnes 2007 was distilled in 2007 and bottled at a cask strength of 55.8% ABV in 2018 as an 11 year old whisky without any colouring or chill filtration.
Cask Bill HDD, hogshead.
Mossburn Vintage Casks No 11 Berinnes 2007 11YO is deceptively light in colour, but with a weighty and slightly malty nose which gradually releases honeyed cereal notes. Casked in Refill Hogsheads for eleven years, the gentle oak influences comes through mid-palate and adds layers of structure before a weighty nut-brittle finish.
