Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A 1977 vintage whisky from Benriach, part of their 2011 Limited Release range, the 8th that they've done. Distilled the year before the distiller was taken over by Seagrams and matured for 34 years, including a period of time finishing in a Pedro Ximenez sherry cask.
