Glen Graeme 14yr Benrinnes Astor Single Cask Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky - 2009

Item # 50278

Filled on August 25th, 2009 into a single sherry hogshead and aged for 14yrs prior to bottling at a regal cask strength of 57.6% abv. Bottled on August 29th, 2023. Benrinnes, one of Scotland's most historic distilleries with roots dating back to 1826, the distiller is still old school by Scotch measures and the singular malt they make here, meaty, full bodied, is so distinctive that parent company Diageo prizes it so much for their Johnnie Walker blends, no regular bottlings are ever made available. In the rare occasion a well matured bottling like this does emerge, it typically trades for 5x this price. True to form this whisky is densely layered and assertive in flavor. Some time in glass airing out with several drops of water does wonders to make the full range of aromas and flavors bloom. Notes of preserved citrus peels, lemony and spicy cracked white pepper, tarragon, ginger tea and almond cake will dazzle your tastebuds.

Staff Pick Notes

Astor's own independent bottling of Benrinnes is a thing to behold: single barrel, cask strength, natural color, non-chill filtered, and friggin' delicious. While distilling has happened at the Benrinnes since 1826, a flood and the ups and downs of the whiskey industry have seen the beloved malt house go through a few different iterations over the years. It's now the workhorse of blended Scotch, most notably Johnnie Black. Actual Benrinnes single malts are a rare and beautiful thing. One sip brings to mind JWB, but with the artifice stripped away, leaving a lean and powerful Scotch that is both elegant and engaging. Get it while you can, because when this is gone, it's gone.




As a synonym for Scottish, some people object to the term “Scotch” – but as far as their whisky goes, the Scottish people are required by law to classify the spirit as “Scotch whisky.”


History:Distillation was brought to Scotland from Ireland by missionary monks in the 6th century. In 1644, the first taxes were imposed on Scottish distillers by England, with the result that most of the nation’s whisky was soon distilled illicitly. With the Parliament’s passing of the “Excise Act” in 1824, licensing fees for distilleries were much cheaper. Distilleries started to take out licenses, and since then, the distillation industry in Scotland has been continuously expanding....
