This latest release from the Speyside based distillery, is said to deliver notes of rich ginger, stewed fruit, citrus, cinnamon, toffee and beeswax polish on the nose. Followed by notes of Seville orange, red apple and demerara sugar on the palate.

The Benromach 40 Year Old bottle, features a heavily embossed and gold foiled label and comes presented in a black stained solid oak wooden box with copper coloured detailing and printed metal plaques.

Commenting on the news, Keith Cruickshank, Distillery Manager at Benromach, said: “This is the first time we have added a higher aged expression into our portfolio as an annual batch release. Each batch will be bottled at natural strength and will reflect the nuance and character of the casks selected for bottling each year. Our first Benromach 40 Years Old displays rich ginger and stewed fruit aromas, Seville orange, red apple and demerara sugar flavours before finishing with citrus zest and a subtle hint of charred oak. It truly is something special.”

Limites to 1,000 bottles, Benromach 40 Year Old will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £1,500.00.
