Tasting Notes

Benromach is one of Speyside's smallest distilleries, that has been passionately making some of the most distinctive whiskies in all of Scotland since the late 19th Century when it was originally founded. An overlooked age statement in the States, this 15yr strikes a remarkable balance between youthful fruit and more mature complex notes of spice that come with the older than average age. A well-rounded crowd pleasing malt.

Staff Pick Notes

Scotch, Scotch, Scotch...Down into my belly. Seriously though, the Benromach 15 year Speyside Whisky, introduced to the Benromach line-up in 2015, is a lusciously rich Speyside single malt. This 15 year-old Whisky is a fruity, chocolatey lightly smoky dram. Matured in a mixture of ex-sherry casks and ex-bourbon casks, with a greater emphasis on sherry than the Benromach 10 Year Old. This Whisky spend an additional 5 years in Oloroso sherry casks, the extra aging gives the whisky a mahogany color and a deep, resinous sherry character. Aromas of sweet toffee, rich forest fruits and dried apricots lead into a slight peat note. The palate is creamy with notes of sweet with ripe apples and an undertone of charred oak. A rich and unctuous Speyside Whisky
