Yesterday, February 1, 2016, the Benromach distillery Company Ltd. released one of their rarest expressions to date; a 35yo expression, that was laid down for maturation in a first fill ex-Sherry cask in the 1980’s. Today, February 2nd, we received a rather cold and open (!) package. Lucky for us, the omnipresent 10yo and the 35yo were both still available in the envelope.
single malt, non-chill filtered, natural colour
Nose: sweet, marzipan, citrus, oranges, lime, dragonfruit, marmalade, berries, gooseberries, fruit, mangos, dried fruit, cranberries, liquorice, tobacco leaves
All in all – with a certain amount of time in the glass – a very good whisky, one we will not encounter soon very easily.
.many thanks to the good people of Benromach for sending us this sample
