Benromach Vintage 1976
Benromach // Speyside, Scotland
Benromach is a Speyside distillery established in 1898. Like many distilleries, this one has changed names and hands throughout their history. Gordon & Macphail are the current owners, but only as recently as 1992 with their first whisky released in May of 2004. This 1976 vintage was distilled under DCL ownership. It was bottled in 2012 and aged in 1st fill and refill sherry casks.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Type1st fill and refill ex-sherry
"The aroma is full of tropical golden fruits with a fairly decent intensity. Toasted coconut and sweet curry spices join in the fun. The palate shows much of the same with a nice balance between malt and fruit with the sherry casks heightening and not overwhelming the whisky. A trace of char smoke and salt is present, but only just. The finish is lovely and lasting."
