Real whiskey connoisseurs wouldn’t leave a chance to savour a delightful single malt. And providing them one such opportunity is the coveted Benromach Distillery in Speyside that recently unveiled a rare 50-year old single cask which is probably unlike anything that you would have tasted before. Luscious, smooth and every bit divine, the novel edition is one of the marquee’s rarest single cask releases and its oldest expression in the current range.
The Benromach 50-year has been matured for half a century in cask no. 2003, an ex-Sherry Hogshead after being laid there in the year 1969. Painstakingly aged, the whiskey bears an exotic flavour with notes of rip fruits, a light hint of smoke and a mature oak finish. It has been manufactured by a small team of distillers who intricately managed the process by sight, sound and touch to create the unique, handcrafted and authentic Benromach taste.
Commenting on the release, Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery Manager in a statement said: “Benromach 50 Years Old is the oldest expression in our current range and was carefully crafted by my predecessors using many of the timeless methods that we still use at Benromach Distillery to this day, with an unwavering focus on sourcing the finest Scottish barley, drawing the purest local spring water and relying on the expertise and senses of our distillers to create a spirit that’s truly handcrafted. The Benromach 50 Years Old (in a limited edition of 125 bottles) will be sold at selected retailers worldwide for a price of $10,000 each.
