Using only the finest Scottish malted barley and the purest spring water from the nearby Romach hills, Benromach is crafted by our experienced distillers. Checking each stage by hand they personally ensure that only the highest quality spirit is filled into sturdy oak casks. The casks full of new whisky are laid down to mature at Benromach Distillery for many years where our experienced distillers can regularly check them. Only when it is matured to our highest quality standards is it labelled Benromach Traditional. Benromach Traditional is rich and mellow with fruit and malty tones, balanced with a hint of smoke.
Nose: Citrus fruits (lemons & limes) with hint of honey and pine resin. Peaty malty notes in the background.
Palate: Smoky with cereal and malt flavours. Dries up with spicy/peppery notes followed by a delicate floral edge.
Nose: Sweet, chocolate and fudge aromas. Floral elements and a hint of phenols (germolene).
Palate: Toasted/smoky flavours initially with a subtle fragrance. Some fruity notes develop along with an earthy, vanilla edge.
Quotes: "Assertive, Aperitif" - Michael Jackson "A bunch of Speyside fragrances. As bracing as a walk on a country trail along a ripe cornfield on a sunny Spring day." - Martine Nouet "...a natural harmony between smoke, barley and light vanllins" - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2008
