This latest launch follows on from the brands relaunch in June, and its new look which is said to be inspired by the Speyside distillery’s history and traditional approach to making their multi-award-winning single malt whisky.
Benromach 21 Year Old, is said to deliver notes of sherry, citrus, ginger, oak and a touch of smoke on the nose, followed by notes of cracked black pepper, Seville orange, raspberry, baked apple and subtle spice on the palate.
Commenting on the news, Keith Cruickshank, Distillery Manager at Benromach, said: “The 21 Year Old is the oldest expression we have offered in our core line up since our team reopened the distillery 22 years ago. As an older whisky which is still grounded in our commitment to using only the finest first-fill bourbon and sherry casks, it provides a unique take on the classic Benromach style.”
He went onto say: “We’re proud to see our new bottles which better reflect the Benromach story and approach to whisky making, now filling stockists’ shelves and drinks cabinets around the world. Made by hand for genuine character, Benromach is a traditional Speyside distillery owned by a family intent on producing single malt the right way. Our small team of distillers rely entirely on their expertise and senses to make the finest handmade whisky, matured exclusively in first-fill casks, with a subtly smoky character and authentic Benromach taste.”
Benromach 21 Year Old, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £129.99.
