Benromach 15 Year Old, 43%Benromach
The fantastic new 15 year old release from Benromach.
Benromach distillery was revived in 1993 by independent bottler Gordon & Macphail. They brought a passion for heritage and tradition to the rebirth of the distillery, creating a whisky that echoes an old Speyside tradition of malting with locally sourced peat and barley.
This expression was aged in a combination of ex bourbon and sherry casks, with a more richly sherried style than the lighter 10 year old.
Rich aromas of charred fruit cake, forest fruits, cracked black pepper and charcoal smoke jump out on the nose. On the palate this is deliciously oily, with more sherried raisins and toffee integrated with waves of earthy smoke. The finish is long and warming, with fresh herbs, cigar box and dark chocolate.
Named Whisky of the Year by The Whisky Exchange 2019.
