Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 46%
Launched in early 2022, Benromach 2010 Cara Gold malt is part of the distillery's famous Benromach Contrasts series. As the name suggests, Benromach Cara Gold Malt is made with a particular type of barley, Cara Gold, which is generally a brewer's barley variety.
For Benromach Cara Gold, a batch of Cara Gold malted barley was combined with Benromach's standard lightly peated malt and aged in first fill ex-bourbon barrels before being bottled at 46% in 2022 as an 11-year-old. Benromach Cara Gold is a limited edition with 6300 bottles available worldwide, so if you're after one don't leave it too long.
