- one of the thickest whiskies I have ever tasted, coffe, chocolate, berries,leather, strong flawless sherry notes, forest fruits jams, walnut liquer, balanced wood tanins, raisins ,chocolate cake with rum and orange, some earthy smoke
- Sherry Monster , creme de cacao , Spring spring spring Flowers
sweet and creamy
Just don't even think to put water inside-it will be destroyed !
- Tasted this one during a whisky fest. in 2005.
The nose was sherry combined with some flowery notes and with water some lovely esters where lurking arround the corner.
The palate was quite big, with a sweet rounded oakyness and some fruit.
The finish was very pleasant with a spicy oaky touch with some sugery sweetness in the back.
- Built in 1898, Benromach Distillery stands on the outskirts of the ancient town of Forres in the beautiful "Laich of Moray" The distillery takes its name and also its water from the nearby Romach Hills.
The distillery is owned by Gordon and MacPhail a family company with over one hundred years of tradition and experience of bottling fine malt whiskies.
From first fill sherry hogsheads. On the nose the whisky has developed flavours of burnt sugar, treacle with floral flavours (lavender and wax polish) with mulled fruits in the background.
Upon tasting , confiming the above with a subtle smokiness.
Presented in a wooden box with a perspect lid.
