David King, International Sales Director, explains: "Our previous Benromach vintage exclusives have been incredibly successful, with vintages from 1972, 1973 and 1974 selling quickly and we look forward to continuing this success with the launch of the 1975 vintage.

"Our exclusive Heritage single malts celebrate different aspects of Benromach’s history and traditions. After 41 years in a carefully selected refill American Hogshead, the character is both unpredictable and intriguing. I’m confident that whisky fans will be eager to savour this precious single malt that comes steeped in Benromach’s history."

As your would expect for such a rare whisky the 41 year old Speyside whisky it is presented in a premium decanter-style bottle; the contours of the neck and shoulder line sculpted to represent copper stills whilst a copper-coloured neck collar adds a luxurious touch.

The presentation box is inspired by the home of Benromach, also reflecting the copper of the stills in use today, as well as the dark, grained wood of the original washbacks and the white of the lime washed distillery walls.

A book also accompanies the whisky, this is sure to make an interesting read to Benromach fans while dramming on their bottle of Benromach 1975, the book delves into the Benromach history as well as providing whisky fans with some fascinating stories about the people behind the whisky.

Benromach 1975 Review

Producer's Tasting Notes:

Nose: sweet honeycomb, toasted malt and luscious apricot infused with notes of warm ginger and fresh citrus. Underlying all these is a delicate hint of sugared almond.

Taste: At first, you may taste a delicate sweetness, with hints of white pepper, dried tobacco and dark cocoa. These evolve into a medley of mature oak flavours, leading to a rich, smooth smoky finish.
