ABOUT FIRKIN TEN BENRINNES 2008 WHISKY
We want to take you on a journey with Firkin Ten. We’ve married whisky from the Benrinnes distillery in Aberlour, Speyside with the tangy and spicy richness of Portuguese Madeira wine. Sounds crazy, but in our hand-built casks; it’s just crazy enough to work.
Our custom casks use a combination of American first-fill Bourbon staves & new French Limousin oak staves with a custom char. This Double Oak cask, in combination with the spicy richness of Madeira, creates a unique flavour profile. What emerges is rich, lively and a tad spicy.
