Benromach 15 years old
Benromach 15 years old is an absolutely lovely Speyside Single malt. It offers luscious sherry and rich fruitcake flavours combined with stewed plumes, hints of cocoa and a delicate touch of peat smoke. There is also plenty of spice ( think touch of cinnamon, ginger and star anise ). Finish is rather sweet and long lasting, full of dried fruits favours coated by delicate smoke.
Gordon and Macphail independent bottlers
Founded in Elgin in 1895 as a 'family grocers, tea, wine and spirits merchants'. Today the company is still family managed and has a legendary status among independent bottlers. It could even be said that Gordon and Macphail started the independent bottlings trade in the mid 1960s. When they released casks of single malt whisky from various distilleries, many of those distilleries didn't even have an official single malt release. Gordon and Macphail has its very own whisky distillery: Benromach in Forres, Morayshire.
