Benromach 1975 (bottled 2016) Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 49.9% abv
Benromach 1975 (bottled 2016) Single Malt Whisky is a Superbly well-matured single cask single malt from the Benromach distillery. It was distilled in 1975 and aged in a refill hogshead for 40 years. This was bottled in 2016, with only 162 bottles being filled. The Benromach Distillery was closed and mothballed in late 1983. Gordon & MacPhail purchased the distillery in the early 90s and it was in full production again in 1998. The very smart packaging of this 1975 whisky pays homage to the original dark grained wooden wash-backs as well as the stills and delightful lime-washed distillery walls.
Nose: Vanilla, burnt oak and warm butterscotch.
Palate: Orchard fruits; fragrant and full.
Finish: Long and rewarding.
