Benromach on the up

Postby Sally Toms » Thu Nov 25, 2004 1:17 pm

Benromach, which earlier this year released its first distillation since reopening six years ago, has been repackaged as interest in the malt continues to grow.

Benromach Traditional has created renewed interest in the Speyside malt since it was launched by owners Gordon & MacPhail in May.
Now the whole range, which includes a cask strength, an 18 year old, and a 25 year old a Vintage and a 21 year old Tokaji wood finish have been released in a smart colour coded series.

Does this mean they've launched a six year old on the market?

Has anyone tried it?

The G+M Benromach I've tried was a very tasty and enjoyable dram.

Cheers,

I tried the Traditional last week, which is quite young and I thought it was excellent for such a young whisky.

There was even quiet a bit of smoke in the initial taste but it vanished in the finish and was replaced with the taste of dusty malt. I had the opportunity to try it in Calgary 10 days ago but didn't because I thought my taste buds were overwhelmed from all the different whiskies. I felt that a young whisky like the Benromachs & Arrans needed fresher palates.

I really liked it and will buy a bottle as soon as it's available here.

I opened up the topic of the new Traditional in the tasting section.

Does anyone know if they are still selling a 12YO?

It's January 3rd and there's is still no Traditional here, it takes so long for a new whisky to be introduced into the market here, it's very frustrating. :evil:

Nice one Harry. How much is it selling for? The price here is suppossed to be $64.95 but that may change. That's pretty high for a 6 year old whisky.

Thanks for the update, I'll keep an eye open for it and yes, it's new and it tasted good. I'm looking forward to buying a bottle.
