Benromach 1975 (49.9% ABV) which was matured in a refill American Hogshead (cask number 3434) is said to be a rich and full-bodied, dark golden malt, delivering notes of white pepper, cocoa and dried tobacco.
Limited to just 162 bottles, this latest release from the Speyside based distillery, was distilled before the Urquhart family, the current owners of Benromach, took the reins and brought Benromach Distillery back to life in the 1990’s.
Benromach 1975, comes presented in a bespoke wooden box and decanter-style bottle with the contours and copper-colour of the neck and shoulder line depicting Benromach Distillery’s stills. The wooden box is inspired by the home of Benromach, reflecting the copper of the stills, as well as the dark, grained wood of the original washbacks and the white of the lime-washed distillery walls.
Commenting on the launch, David King, International Sales Director at Benromach, said: “Benromach’s global popularity is growing dramatically and the brand is now exported to more than 40 countries around the world, with sales increasing by 23% in the last twelve months alone. Our previous Benromach vintage exclusives have been incredibly successful, with vintages from 1972, 1973 and 1974 selling quickly and we look forward to continuing this success with the launch of the 1975 vintage.”
He went on to say: “Our exclusive Heritage single malts celebrate different aspects of Benromach’s history and traditions. After 41 years in a carefully selected refill American Hogshead, the character is both unpredictable and intriguing. I’m confident that whisky fans will be eager to savour this precious single malt that comes steeped in Benromach’s history.”
Benromach 1975, will be available later this month from specialist retailers for a RRP of £1,250.00.
