Benromach was founded in 1898 and today is the smallest working distillery in Speyside, employing just two people to make its whisky - current output is just 200,000 litres per year. The distillery is owned by independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail, who bought it in 1993, ten years after it had been mothballed by previous owners United Dist ... Read More »
A 20cl quarter bottle of the lipsmacking Benromach 10yo, which has been a revelation since its introduction by owners Gordon & Macphail in late 2009, and is really putting this great distillery back on the map.
The first new bottling since the distillery began production in 1998 after a 15-year lay-off. The whisky is young, but has a delicious dollop of peat and plenty of fresh, ripe flavours. A very welcome return.
A smart packaging job for this distillery-bottled expression of Benromach 10yo, which has been a big hit since its introduction in late 2009. Well done to G&M for making the standard release strength 43%.
A 2000 vintage whisky from Benromach, Gordon & Macphail's distillery near the town of Forres. This was distilled in 2000 and has been finished in Port casks, continuing the experiments started by the previous generation of the Urquhart family.
A vatting of seven first-fill bourbon casks of 2001 Benromach bottled at full strength towards the end of 2010. Kudos to owners G&M for bottling when the whisky's ready rather than waiting until it was a 10yo.
A very worthy bottling from Benromach - this is a single sherry cask bottled at 80 proof to represent the longitude of the Whale & Dolphin Conservation Society's project to sagfeguard the humpback whales of Ecuador. £5 from the sale of each bottle of this whisky will go to the project.
Released to celebrate the distillery's centenary, this 17yo Benromach spent its final two years in sherry casks dating from 1886, 1895 and 1901 before bottling in 1998 by Gordon & Macphail, who had recently taken over and re-invigorated the distillery after a fifteen year distilling hiatus.
A superb (and hugely potent) expression of Benromach, this 19 year-old was distilled in 1978 and bottled around 1997 for the Rare Malts series. The distillery was mothballed at the time of this release but has since re-opened under new owners Gordon & MacPhail.
A 30 year old whisky from north Speyside distillery Benromach. The spirit in this was distilled back before its 1983 mothballing and subsequent 15 years of silence. Whisky Bible Awards 2012: Best 28-34 Year Old Single Malt Scotch of the Year (multiple casks)
A rare old Cadenhead's bottling of this top Speysider. It's great how the fonts on these labels are such a good guide to the tastes of the times - check out the Dallas Dhu '62 or the Macallan 1963 if you don't believe us.
An old and well aged whisky from Benromach, bottled by independent retailer Cadenhead's. It was distilled in February 1966 and bottled in October 1993, the year that the (at that time) mothballed distillery was bought by current owners Gordon & Macphail.
