On February 1st Benromach has launched one of his rarest bottlings to date, the Benromach 35 year old. This exclusive whisky is made before the family Urquhart (Gordon & McPhail) took over the distillery in 1998.
The 35 year old is bottled at 43% ABV and has hints of cinnamon and beeswax polish, stewed pear and a delicate charred Oak edge.
The specially designed bottle is encased within a wooden presentation box, reflecting the various elements which have gone into making the whisky; the copper stills, the dark, grained wood of the original washbacks, and the white of the limewashed distillery walls.
Benromach Distillery Manager Keith Cruickshank said: “Benromach 35 Years Old is a very special whisky for everyone at the distillery, as very few casks of Benromach remain from this time period. Benromach today is created respecting the traditional working practices of yesteryear and is lovingly handcrafted by sight, by sound, and by touch, using the finest natural ingredients. The 35 Years Old is the perfect dram to toast the past, present and future of Benromach.”
Benromach 35 years old will be available at specialist whisky retailers. The price will be around 650,- Euro. Prices may vary in international markets due to duty and import taxes.
