The consumption with some water convinced with fruit essences of banana, pear and red apple.

Original Tasting Notes.

The bottle presents itself as a noble decanter, the haptic elements are based on the materials of the distillery.
The curved curve follows the elegant bottle form and reminds of the long lifeline of this rare whisky. It represents the artistic path of the selection - only the very best, perfect mature barrel number 1583 was suitable for a Benromach 1974.
The label also is formed with haptic elements in copper.
The noble design arose in cooperation of some months with Scottish creative artists.
The casket made of dark oak reminds of the traditional, wooden washbacks (fermentation tubs) which are still used today in the Benromach distillery.
