We have a weakness for this lightly peated Speyside, inspired by the style of the single malts produced in this region before the Second World War. Launched in September 2009 by the Urquhart family, the owners of the distillery and Gordon & MacPhail, it has the finesse and fruitiness of the Speyside single malts combined with the smoky notes of an Islay. Exclusively imported and distributed on the French market by La Maison du Whisky, there is nothing in Scotland that really compares to this very seductive single malt, with its rich aromatic palette and range of flavours. Sourcing its water from the neighbouring Romach hills, this single malt is the result of a blend of bourbon and sherry casks. The blend then rests for twelve months in oloroso sherry casks, of which only Gordon & MacPhail know the secret. A peated version worthy of a southern Islay.
Benromach traces its roots back to pre-1960s Speyside and produces a whisky with hints of delicate smoke and a wonderful balance of flavours. Known for the high quality of its distillate, the distillery takes particular care in the production of its whisky. Indeed, Benromach’s three distillers carefully orchestrate every second of the distillation process and use only high-quality, 100% Scottish ingredients. Each cask is filled, weighed and stamped by hand, before being matured for a number of years in their traditional bonded warehouses. A vibrant illustration of tradition and modernity, Benromach is noted for its unique maturations and dynamic image
