Benromach 1977 39 Year Old Single Cask (70cl, 56%) ***sold***
An exquisitely-packaged bottle of Benromach 1977. One of only 225 bottles.
This limited edition Speyside single malt was laid down at the Benromach distillery in 1977 and bottled in 2017 after spending approximately 40 years in single refill American Hogshead number 1268.
Released in October 2017 as one of just 225 bottles, this stunning golden vintage malt was bottled at a natural cask strength 56% ABV and comes complete with beautiful dark oak presentation case, representing the wood of the original Benromach washbacks used by the distillery before it closed in 1983, and a hardback booklet containing a history of the famous distillery.
Benromach distillery in Speyside was built at the end of the 19th century, and spent much of the next providing malt for the blends of its owners, who included Macdonald Greenlees, Joseph Hobbs and latterly, DCL (now Diageo), who were the first to produce a distillery bottling of its single malt as part of the Rare Malts Selection. DCL closed the distillery in 1983, selling it to current proprietors, Gordon & MacPhail, ten years later. They then had to spend the next five rebuilding it from scratch, as little remained other than the shell of the buildings. It has since become a well-regarded and widely distributed single malt.
