Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 50.1%
From the sister cask of the 2016 1973 release is this remarkable 45-year-old whisky limited to just 66 bottles.
This stunning low outturn Benromach was distilled in 1973 and aged for 45 years in a single refill American Hogshead before being bottled at 50.1% in 2019 that yielded just 66 bottles.
Each decanter is presented in a high-quality wooden box with a plinth for the bottle to stand on and a history book about the distillery and this bottle.

Nose: Sweet top notes of pear drops, lime and lemon sherbet and creamy vanilla fudge are followed by fresh floral hints and subtle traces of malted barley.
Palate: Rounded honey sweetness is balanced with a dash of chilli spice. Sugared violets and hints of dry hay develop leading to creamy roasted hazelnuts.
Finish: Lingering sweet herbal tobacco with an edge of fresh menthol, hints of orange, citrus zest and a whisp of smoke.
