Established in 1898 the distillery experienced many closures and changes of ownership prior to 1993 when malt whisky specialists, Gordon & MacPhail rescued it. After being extensively re-equipped, Benromach was officially re-opened by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1998.
Matured in first fill bourbon barrels and made with heavily peated barley, Benromach Peat smoke is far more intense than the subtle smoke of their 10 year old.
Nose - Sweet vanilla with honey and cured meat aromas. Hints of apricot and lemon combine with a subtle tobacco note.
Palate - There’s cracked pepper with sweet strawberry and orange flavours, a delicate hint of aniseed… combined with a lingering edge of bonfire embers.
Finish - Slow cooked apple, pear and tangy grapefruit give way to a trace of cocoa powder and an absolutely gorgeous edge of lingering cigars.
