New: Benromach Cask Strength // Port Ellen 39 Years // Highland Park 25 & 30 Years

Benromach Cask Strength Batch 1

Benromach Cask Strength – Batch #1

Benromach will soon bring back the Benromach Cask Strength that existed before the revival of the distillery. The first batch is distilled in 2008 and will be bottled at 57.9% ABV.

With pretty much the same age and strength as the Benromach 10 Years 100 Proof, the new one is effectively replacing the 100 Proof, as confirmed by Stuart Urquahart from G&M.

Bottled at 50.9% ABV from a selection of ex-bourbon and refill sherry casks, only 1500 bottles are available for around € 4800 early April.
