Tasting Notes

Take a short inhalation, appreciating the wonderful aromas without water… enjoy the tantalising notes of warm apple pie, poached pear and hints of ginger, mingling with subtle floral notes complemented by rich apricot jam. Now take a sip. Savour the notes of velvety crème brûlée beautifully balanced by undertones of warm pepper. Hints of banana develop, leading to a touch of toffee apple and delicate citrus edge. Add a few drops of water and take time to enjoy the nose as it develops… Vibrant citrus and floral aromas emerge, followed by fragrant vanilla. Now lift it to your lips and enjoy a slow sip… Sweet heather honey and soft peaches mingle with smooth milk chocolate. Candied citrus peel leads to a touch of oak and tobacco on the finish. Sublime!

AA Benromach

Following numerus periods of closure, it was purchased in 1993 by < b>Gordon & MacPhail who charged up its single pair of stills in 1998 and have nurtured Benromach ever since. Striking new labelling combined with an increasing range of single malts is forging a very popular brand of single malt whiskies which includes Benromach Organic, Benromach Peatsmoke and Benromach 10 Year Old.
