Benromach Exclusive Cask „German Selection by Schlumberger“ Vintage 2009

The third edition of the new single casks series was released

A special edition of the Benromach Distillery in the Speyside was announced these days: Benromach Exclusive Cask „German Selection by Schlumberger“ Vintage 2009 is the name of the single malt.

Only a fortnight ago we introduced you to the two Penderyn Single Malts that started this series: the “German Selection by Schlumberger” will present bottlings from single casks exclusively selected for the German market by distributor Schlumberger from the stock of its partner distilleries. After the Penderyn Ex-Tawny Port Single Cask and the Penderyn Ex-Bourbon Single Cask Vintage 2006 now a Benromach is launched. It is a nine year old whisky, distilled in 2009 and matured in a first fill Boubon cask with the number 121 until it was bottled this year. The edition is limited to 273 bottles and presents 60.7 % ABV cask strength.
