Benromach launches 50-year-old single cask Scotch
Speyside distillery Benromach has launched the oldest single malt in its current range – a 50-year-old single cask Scotch priced at US$10,000.
Single cask Benromach 50 Years Old was laid down in an ex-Sherry hogshead in 1969 and was left to mature for 50 years.
Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery manager, said: “Benromach is known for its range of classic Speyside single malt Scotch whiskies, beautifully balanced with a light touch of smoke.
“This old and rare expression exudes undertones of gentle smoke and rewards 50 years of patience and nurture with sweet Sherry aromas, ripe fruits and a mellow, mature oak finish.”
Only 125 decanters of the whisky will be available to purchase globally.
Based in Forres, Benromach was acquired by Gordon & MacPhail in 1993. The distillery announced an expansion of its warehousing facilities last year, when it also moved into gin with the release of Red Door Gin.
