Benromach 35 Year Old
Matured for 35 years in first fill sherry casks at Gordon & MacPhail’s Benromach distillery in Speyside, this expression is a beautiful golden amber in colour, and at 43% abv, it is a satisfyingly complex whisky.
The beautiful golden amber hues of the Benromach 35 Year Old promise a satisfying, complex Speysider… and it generously fulfils its promise. Pour a dram and appreciate the aroma without water, the nose offers rich sherry influences with orange marmalade, kiwi and grapefruit aromas, complemented by gorgeous cinnamon spice. Now lift it to your lips and take a sip, enjoying the taste without water. Initially, it is sweet on the palate with honey, fruitcake, ripe banana and melon flavours. Watch out for the smooth white chocolate edge as it develops, combined with a soft menthol note, giving a full body and long and smooth fruity finish. Now add a drop or two of water and notice the aroma with water, sherry influences with honey, blackcurrant and beeswax polish aromas, complemented by a subtle hint of cloves. Now it’s time to savour the taste with water, a fabulous combination of white pepper followed by dried tobacco, dewy stewed pear, raisin and zesty orange peel flavours, heightened by a delicate edge of charred oak…the result of lingering for over three decades in oak casks.
The expression is made using 35-year-old whisky distilled at Speyside-based Bendromach before the distillery was brought back into production by Gordon & MacPhail in 2003.
“Benromach 35 Year Old is a very special whisky for everyone at the distillery, as very few casks of Benromach remain from this time period,” said Benromach Distillery manager Keith Cruickshank.
“Benromach today is created respecting the traditional working practices of yesteryear and is lovingly handcrafted by sight, by sound, and by touch, using the finest natural ingredients. The 35 Years Old is the perfect dram to toast the past, present and future of Benromach.”
