Tasting Notes

Pour your dram of Benromach 20th Anniversary Bottling and prepare your senses to encounter an experience as rare as this gorgeous whisky. First, lift your glass to the light and appreciate the beautiful deep amber hue created by lingering for many years in First Fill Oak Casks as the whisky grew and matured in character. Take a short inhalation, appreciating the wonderful aromas without water… enjoy the rich notes of fruit cake, mingling with sweet demerara sugar and vanilla. Underlying hints of zingy citrus and dark chocolate develop with a touch of warm spice. Now take a sip...The delicious sweetness of stewed raisin and apple is wonderfully complemented by dark chocolate. Notes of orange zest, toffee, ginger and liquorice follow, leading to a hint of smooth creaminess and lingering charred oak on the finish. Add a few drops of water and take time to enjoy the nose as it develops… top notes of sweet vanilla, ripe pear and melon and luscious summer berries mingle with hints of butterscotch and citrus peel. Now lift it to your lips and enjoy a slow sip… a creamy sweetness combining with sherry influences and baked plum immediately emerges followed by traces of cinnamon and chocolate. Hints of apricot, orange and charred oak blend with subtle spice and a light touch of smoke on the finish.

3000

Only 3000 bottles released, this rare 20th anniversary bottling was distilled in 1998 and bottled at CASK STRENGTH in 2018. Made and nurtured the time-honoured way, each precious drop of our gorgeous SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY perfectly captures the classic Speyside character of Benromach: beautifully balanced with a light touch of smoke.

1998

This exclusive 20th anniversary bottling was distilled in 1998, honouring both the centenary of BENROMACH DISTILLERY and the beginning of a new era of ownership. Rested in first fill oak casks in our traditional dunnage warehouses for many years prior to bottling, it is the oldest edition to date in our classic collection of SPEYSIDE SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKIES since distilling resumed at BENROMACH.

1993

Towards the end of the 20th century, and 90 years after whisky was first made at BENROMACH, production ceased at the distillery. While selected vintage casks remained safely in warehouses under watchful eyes and secure lock and key, BENROMACH’S future remained in doubt for several years until a local Speyside family bought and rescued the distillery in 1993.

25 Years of Passion

Independently owned by a family with whisky in its heart & soul, BENROMACH was lovingly brought back to life over the following FIVE years. Guiding every step of the way was the family’s unique vision of reviving the old handcraft traditions of distilling to save the classic taste of SPEYSIDE SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY. A taste almost lost to the world forever; A TASTE REDISCOVERED.

5 Years of Focus

Taking ownership of BENROMACH in 1993, we deliberately stepped back in time by refitting the distillery without automated machinery. And when we resumed distilling in 1998, we knew exactly the gorgeous character of whisky we wanted to revive. Rich, smooth and beautifully balanced with a subtle hint of smoke, BENROMACH 20th anniversary bottling perfectly captures the classic character of SPEYSIDE SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY we were determined to recreate.

1 Cut

Our expert distillers cut the sweet heart of the run by hand - a rare art these days - the spirit was then filled by hand into first fill oak casks and rested in our traditional dunnage warehouses. Undisturbed for many years, this limited edition 20th anniversary bottling developed the celebrated Speyside character that BENROMACH revived back in 1998: beautifully balanced with a light touch of smoke.copper cut

1 Red Chimney

1 Red Chimney

Tall and imposing, our landmark chimney remains an enduring symbol of our proud heritage as a distiller of distinction. For over 120 years it has marked the home of our SPEYSIDE SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKIES.

12 Miles

After many years of slowly maturing, BENROMACH 20th anniversary bottling was judged to be ready by our Distillery Manager. Each cask was then rolled out of our traditional dunnage warehouses by hand and carefully transported just 12 miles to be bottled locally.
