Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 Batch 1


24th April 2019
Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 replaces Benromach 100 Proof in the Classic Range.

Benromach Distillery has announced a new addition to its Classic Range, Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 Batch 1, which is described as a rich and full-bodied, limited-batch single malt whisky.

The batch release which will be sold worldwide with the exception of China and the US, these countries will receive Cask Strength Vintage market exclusives later this year. This Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 was matured in First-Fill Sherry and Bourbon casks and there will be a total of 5,500 bottles available to purchase worldwide from today.

Laid down in 2008 before being bottled in 2019, Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 is a 10 year old whisky. The golden amber dram is said to have notes of cracked black pepper, fruits and milk chocolate, with a delicate smoky edge on the palate, with a long, deep finish with subtle smokiness and bonfire embers.

Bottled at cask strength (57.9% ABV), Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 Batch 1 will replace Benromach 100 Proof in the Classic Range. The new expression will provide single malt Scotch whisky fans with subtle variations on the flavour profile of Benromach 100 Proof with small strength and natural colour variations reflecting different batches.

Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery Manager, said: "By offering the opportunity to own and enjoy batch releases, we are able to further showcase the expertise of our distilling team while determining the right time to bottle each batch to take full advantage of the remarkable single malt whiskies we produce. We believe this expression will allow Benromach drinkers to understand more about the provenance of the whisky they are drinking.

"Every whisky we release has been carefully handcrafted by our close-knit team of distillers. While retaining the overall flavours that Benromach consumers have enjoyed in Benromach 100 Proof, the new Cask Strength Vintage release will differ subtly in both strength and flavour profile, reflecting the specific casks chosen from the vintage year."

Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 Batch 1 is presented in an elegant bottle with shapes and textures inspired by the Speyside distillery. The copper cut medallion on the packaging signifies the moment in time when the distillers cut to the sweet heart of the spirit run. Each bottle will detail the vintage year, batch number and age.

Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 Batch 1 will be available in selected markets worldwide with a recommended retail price (RRP) of 69.95 (59.95). Prices in local markets may vary depending on local taxes and duty.*

Benromach is one of only a few distilleries in Scotland to use traditional methods, without any automated machinery. The small team of distillers employ all their senses when crafting the classic Speyside single malt Scotch whiskies, managing the process by sight, sound and touch to create the unique, handcrafted and authentic Benromach taste.

You will soon find the new Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 as well as the rest of the current Benromach whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
