I´m coming home soon and noticed BENROMACH Traditional in the magazine.
Has anyone tasted it?
I once drank the 12year old expression from a visit to Elgin and wondered why they discontinued it for the older 15yrs. Does the traditional come anywhere near this.
I HAVE READ THE NOTES, BUT WOULD ENJOY OTHERS THOUGHTS.
If this is the new Benromach since G&McP bought and reopened the distillery, I just tried their 6yo 1998 bottling at a show and while it shows some promise, right now it is just too young. Worth trying at a tasting or buying as a collector's bottle (perhaps) but not great for drinking. Not terrible or anything but needs more time in the barrel IMO.
It was hard work but I finally tracked a tasting down whilst in Edinburgh recently. :) Yes I liked it not quick the 12yro I so enjoyed, but just the thing for a Sunday lunch (a big thing in Sao Paulo). Unfortunetly I had already bought too much in the early Christmas sales at Scot-mid and Asda.
But it's on my shopping list from family visiting.
