Balmenach 40 Year Old (1979) - Old & Rare Heritage 



Rich and fruity whisky from Balmenach, bottled after long ageing as part of the, appropriately titled, Old & Rare range by Hunter Laing. This takes the distillery's classic Speyside character and amplifies it, layering rich, winter fruit with peppery spice and fresh citrus.

This golden whisky has notes of golden syrup, vanilla, rhubarb crumble and custard on the nose. Christmas notes on the palate with ginger, white pepper, and blood oranges marinated with sultana juice. A long, rich, spicy finish follows.
