Scores and Reviews

OTHER - Nose
Malty. Honey Smacks cereal. Barley sugar. Fruit after a while. Tinned peaches, stewed pears. Elegant oak, a polished floor note. Complex. Nut biscuits. Gentle spices; long peppercorn, coriander.
Smooth at first then oak speaks up. But in the most refined way. Honey, beewax. Greengage jam. Ground ginger. Drying on spices.
Lingering. Spicy and oaky. Slowly fading on dry almond.
A superb whisky, rich, deep, complex, with a mature oakiness. I would avoid water personally.

Martine Nouet - Whisky Magazine Issue 113 Nose
Bold and big, serious layers of aroma. Honey nut cornflakes, proving dough heavy with yeast. Then a sweet fruit syrup note, beeswax, and then the spices start to develop, a roast pepper edge and herbs.
Elegant and refined. The sweetness from the nose is balanced with a rich manuka honey, a citrus edge and ginger nut biscuits and butter.
Keeps giving with oak spices and a little of that powdery ginger biscuit note.
A serious multilayered and intriguing dram, that just keeps revealing more and more over time.

The Story

Benromach Distillery, Speyside


Benromach Distillery, Speyside

Benromach Distillery is located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres in Speyside. This small and almost lost distillery produces a range of single malt whiskies that include Benromach Traditional -matured 5 ½ years in Bourbon (80% ) and Sherry casks (20%) and Benromach Organic.

In 1983 Benromach was closed by its then owners United Distillers. In 1993 Gordon & MacPhail, the Elgin-based whisky merchants and bottlers acquired the distillery and completely renovated its facilities.


Speyside Whisky

To some Speyside represents the jewel in whisky’s crown. Speyside is the home of legal whisky production and it’s best known examples. Around the world Glenlivet, Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenrothes and Glenfarclas typify all that whisky, at it’s best has to offer. At it’s heart running from the Monadhliath mountains north to the sea, is the River Spey. It is the fastest flowing river in Britain, and also well known for its salmon fishing.

Speyside is the principal whisky-producing region: Speyside has within it some forty-six operating distilleries - over half the total number in the entire Scotland.

Speysides are essentially sweet whiskies. They have little peaty character They are typically highly perfumed, feminine and elegant.

The classical nature of Speyside’s malts means that a number of the finest malts are used almost exclusively for blending. It is the top Speysider’s that give good blends their ‘Top Dressing’. 

Malts such as Mortlach, Glen Elgin, Strathmill and Benrinnes are rarely found as distillery bottlings, however when individual casks are tracked down by independent bottlers such as our Own Selection Single Malt Whiskies the resultant whisky can be quite wonderful.
