Benromach Heritage 1977, is said to display flavours of warm apple pie, poached pear and hints of ginger, mixed with subtle floral notes complemented by rich apricot jam.
Benromach Heritage 1972, is said to have a golden amber hue with a tempting nose of vanilla custard, honey and tropical fruits, with intriguing hints of mature oak and an edge of fresh menthol.
Both of the new expressions from the multi award winning, Speyside distillery, come presented in a decanter-style bottle, inspired by the curving shapes and silky textures of the distillery’s copper stills. The bottle nestles inside a rich, dark oak wooden box, reminiscent of the wood used in the original distillery washbacks.
Commenting on the launch, Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery Manager, said: “We’re proud to build on the popularity of previous Benromach vintage releases from the 1970s with these unique single cask bottlings that represent different moments in time from the distillery’s rich history.”
He went onto say: “Through careful monitoring and regular sampling throughout the maturation process, these remarkable releases have been aged to over 40 years each. Both golden amber single malts are brimming with fruity flavours and subtle oak notes. The release of these vintage expressions is an outstanding start to an exciting year for Benromach.”
Benromach Heritage 1977 and 1972, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for the respective RRP’s of £1,250 and £1,500.
