Benromach 35 Years Old Single Malt
A limited release from Benromach distillery, this 35-year-old whisky was distilled in the early 1980s and aged in first-fill sherry casks. Released in two tranches during 2016, this has notes of honey, chocolate, menthol and clove.
Colour: The beautiful golden amber hues of the 35 Years Old promise a satisfying, complex Speysider… and it generously fulfils its promise.
Aroma without water: The nose offers rich sherry influences with orange marmalade, kiwi and grapefruit aromas, complemented by gorgeous cinnamon spice.
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.
Aroma with water: Sherry influences with honey, blackcurrant and beeswax polish aromas, complemented by a subtle hint of cloves.
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.
