A coveted limited edition of only 452 bottles coming from one precious cask, slowly matured for over four decades in our traditional dunnage warehouses.
Pour your dram of BENROMACH 1974, cask number 1583, and prepare your senses for an incredible journey of unmitigated moments. First, lift your glass to the light and appreciate the beautiful golden amber colour created by lingering for 41 years in a sherry butt as the whisky grew and matured in character. Take a short inhalation, savouring the aromas without water… enjoy the opulent sherry influences infused with plump sultana, sharp green apple and zesty orange peel aromas. Underlying all these are rich hints of beeswax polish and menthol. Now take a sip. At first, you may taste ripe banana, succulent raspberries and blackcurrants.
These develop into hints of dark chocolate, leading to a long and smooth finish. Add a few drops of water and take time to enjoy the nose as it develops… fragrant pear and apricot aromas follow the sherry notes, with developing hints of sweet-sharp candied orange peel and beeswax polish. Now lift it to your lips and enjoy a slow sip… a veritable fruit bowl of bananas, pears and red apples emerges, complemented by hints of charred oak. Finally, a superb liquorice and dark praline edge combines with a trace of smoke on the finish. Sublime. Tell us what you think
