Benromach Peat Smoke

Benromach Peat Smoke – Take in the aroma without water of sweet vanilla, honey and cured meat aromas, hints of apricot and lemon combining with a beautiful subtle tobacco note.

Dive in and enjoy the taste without water, there’s cracked pepper with sweet strawberry and orange flavours, a delicate hint of aniseed… combined with a lingering edge of bonfire embers.

The finest Scottish barley is malted with high levels of peat smoke at 67ppm (parts per million: the phenol level, to those in the know).

Now enjoy the aroma of Benromach Peat Smoke with water, the delicate smokiness complements lemon, honey and vanilla aromas with sweet hints of apricot and sugared almonds developing on the tongue.

Lift Benromach Peat Smoke to your lips and savour the taste with water. Slow cooked apple, pear and tangy grapefruit give way to a trace of cocoa powder and an absolutely gorgeous edge of lingering cigars.

Benromach Peat Smoke is a wonderfully fruity and smoky single malt whisky.

The Benromach distillery in Forres was constructed in 1898 by the Benromach Distillery Company Ltd then was almost immediately closed and like many a Scottish distillery spent much of the next century opening and closing it’s doors with the rise and fall of the whisky market until bought by whisky merchants Gordon and Macphail in 1992.

At Benromach, they handcraft their whisky and make it slowly, the time-honoured way. Benromach Whiskies

It’s why their 10 Year Old is brimming with gorgeous classic pre-1960s Speyside character. And every drop is fine enough to be savoured as a single malt.

Before the mid 1960s, Speyside distilleries malted their own barley. Hidden away in remote glens, they’d top up their fires with cuts of local peat when coal was running low.

These slices were enough to impart a touch of smoke in the region’s whisky. And, with the advent of new commercial maltings in the swinging ‘60s, this subtle Speyside smokiness was lost to the world. But only for a while.

Because Gordon and Macphail bought the mothballed Benromach Distillery and gave the world back this lost style of whisky.

But it’s not just the peat that makes the difference. Numerous nuances go into creating the classic character of Benroamch.
