Original bottling
The new 10 year old Benromach was bottled to celebrate the 10th birthday of the distillery. Benromach is one of the few Speyside distilleries that uses peated malt. The casks are 80% bourbon casks and 20% sherry casks.
Original bottling
This is one of the famous standard bottlings of the Benromach distillery. It is a no age whisky with about 8 years of age. For its production the Benromach distillery uses lightly peated malt. This is not a typical move for a Speyside distillery. The...
Original bottling
This special Edition from Benromach was monitored by the 'Soil Association'. The whole process from the distillation to the bottling is a certified ecological process. It was matured in fresh American oak casks, not in Bourbon casks.
Original bottling
The Benromach Wood Finish Range is a nice combination of elegant fruit and a slight peat smoke note. The Benromach matured in traditional oak casks, before it was finished for another eight years in ex Port wine casks.

Another vote for Benromach...1) Benromach 102) Talisker 103) Springbank 10
@fortyfourcaliber Happy upcoming birthday!An ideal alternative to the Dalmore 12 would be the Glenmorangie Lasanta or Quinta Ruban, other whiskies from a distillery in the same region (the Highlands).  Personally, I like the Quinta Ruban much better than ...
Got this in Gordon & Mcphail in Elgin recently whilst on holiday...its ok,but not as good as I expected,wanted Clynelish 15,but they had sold out.Was tempted by Benromach 15,but chose this.85/100 is my vote..good but not memorable!
@Chawit_Ongcharit I would say that Bowmore is medium peated and not heavily peated like Laphroaig and Ardbeg.More medium peated whiskies would be Talisker. While a bit lighter peated is Benromach. Both of these distilleries I recommend. As a good start ...
@SlàinteMhathI tasted the 8yo Lagavulin before new year. It was for me very similar to the Bunnahabhain Moine. And no colouring as the colour were lighter than usual. Not many does like Lagavulin and put out an age statement below ten years old. Benromach ...
Thanks for sharing.  I envy you!It's amazing how Balvenie is able to produce so much whisky while staying true to the craft.  I've always liked Benromach, although I wasn't impressed with the Organic; I wanted to like it so much, but I'll take the ten ...
In no certain order, my top 5 would be:LagavulinSpringbankBenromachYoichiBowmore
@Stephg25If you want older and more complex. Than Talisker 18yo is also very good. Or why not Benromach 15yo, but that is just scratching 50 pounds.For a sherry bomb what about Tamdhu batch strength, that one is really interesting.
My latest are the following:Benromach Organic 2010Benromach 10Yo 100 proofTamdhu Batch strength no 2Glenfarclas 21yo
@NoodlesFor a very delightful and slightly smoky whisky I would recommend anything from Benromach.
@bedlamborn I've been going crazy trying to find Benromach in my area! Nobody carries it
