Tasting the new Benromach 35 yo

Last monday, Benromach revealed their brand new 35 year old expressions an exclusive expression crafted at the distillery before the Urquhart family, owners of leading whisky specialist Gordon & MacPhail, revived it in 1998. I really loved the 1976 edition I reviewed some time ago, and needless to say I was intrigued to find out how good this one is… …

Benromach 5 year old

The Benromach 100 proof and 10 year old were two of my favorite whiskies for 2015, and many fellow whisky lovers appreciate the exceptional quality and great VFM those two offer. The 10 year old has a new (not so new now, but fairly new) small brother – the 5 yo.  The 10 and 100 proof do feel older than …

The new Benromach 15 yo–Review and Tasting notes–#BenromachTT

The Benromach 10 year old and its Cask Strength sibling the 100 proof have been favorites of mine for quite some time now, both priced very competitively at a level few other whiskies can even come near. I was quite happy to be able to try the new 15 year old in a twitter tasting held last night. The lineup …

Benromach Organic 2008 – Review

Benromach have been making good whiskies recently (the 10 and 100 proof 10 are both crackers). This whisky is a bit different, being aged in virgin oak casks, and being organic – made from biological Barley and adhering to organic standards. It was one of the first organic whiskies back then in 2006 and this 2008 version is the latest. …

Benromach 100 proof – Review

Time for a short break from the Blind tasting competition, where yours truly makes an ass of himself by guessing the wrong distilleries, regions and drams (I am not alone, so I am in pretty good company , right?). After tasting the 10 year old blind last week, and remembering how bloody marvellous that dram is, and how good it …

Older Benromachs rock too–Benromach 1976

After the brilliant 10 year old, comes a much older, and much more expensive vintage Benromach – the 1976. Only one year younger than yours truly, it’s really at the age when whisky begins to display those “old” characteristics, i love so much. at £485 (at The whisky exchange), it’s not a cheap dram at all, and it’s aimed at …

The affordable whisky that could: Benromach 10

We do not often remember this, but most people drink blended whisky, and those who do drink single malts often opt for the affordable malts which some of us whisky geeks find “boring” : The Glen Livet 12, the Glenfiddich 12 etc, or in short: single malts under 30 quid.
It’s been long since i tried anything from Benromach, now owned …

Benromach, scotch, Speyside, Tasting Notes »

[2 Mar 2010 | 10 Comments | ]

As you know Speyside is not my favorite whisky region. I do have some Malts from that region, which i like (Cragganmore which is spicy and bold , Glenfarclas which i adore for example) , But usually i associate Speyside with lighter un-peated malts, more flowery flavors and delicate aromas.
The Benromach 10 was my first dram from this lovely distillery …
