About Firkin Ten Benrinnes 2008 Whisky
Firkin Whisky Company want to take you on a journey with Firkin Ten. They’ve married whisky from the Benrinnes distillery in Aberlour, Speyside with the tangy and spicy richness of Portuguese Madeira wine. Sounds crazy, but in their double wood hand-built casks; it’s just crazy enough to work.
Firkin's custom single cask 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.
