Benromach 35 Years Old (ABV 43%) is a most satisfying Speysider with cinnamon hints and beeswax polish, stewed pear and a delicate charred Oak edge.
Colour; golden amber hues.

WITH WATER ADDED;
Nose; sherry influences with honey, blackcurrant and beeswax polish aromas, complemented by a subtle hint of cloves.
Palate; 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.
Matured in first fill sherry casks.
This rare whisky, dating back to a time before Benromach was restored in the ‘1990s, extrudes the heritage of the Speyside distillery.
Handcrafted using the finest natural ingredients at the Forres distillery, Benromach 35 Years Old is an exceptional whisky with real heritage and an original tale or two, having been laid down to mature in the 1980’s.
Created under the watchful eye of Donald MacDonald, former Distillery Manager, the casks this whisky was matured in have long been a part of the Benromach history. Willie McArthur, former malt man and warehouseman, was one of the workers responsible for protecting the precious casks remaining in the bonded warehouses.
