Benromach launch their second annual release of their 40-year old single malt whisky

Age. Not so good if you want to be an influencer, but if you’re a grain spirit that’s been living in a barrel in a warehouse… proper badge of honour, innit?

Benromach Distillery in Speyside has launched its second annual release of the Benromach 40 Year Old. There are just over 1,000 bottles of this rare, single malt, described at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2022 as ‘Best in Show’.

Bottled at a cask strength of 57.6% Benromach 40 Year Old, 2022 release, spent over four decades maturing in sherry casks. The result is, apparently, hints of roasted hazelnuts, baked apple, dark chocolate and mature oak, and the rich ginger and stewed fruit aromas displayed in its first annual batch release.

The single malt is displayed in a striking black stained solid oak wooden box with copper- coloured detailing and printed metal plaques, and priced at £2,000 per bottle. For more details, you know what to do…
