Benromach 2013 Contrasts Organic
The Benromach 2013 Contrasts Organic was matured in virgin American oak casks for 8 long years. The casks imparted a lovely palate with sweet malty notes, creamy pepper, banana, coffee and cocoa flavours.
The barley used to make this delightful whisky was grown on soil fully certified as organic by the UK Soil Association.
Benromach distillery is located close to Forres in the Speyside region. It was founded in 1898 and produced its first batch of spirit in 1900. From there it went through numerous changes of ownership and intermittent periods of production. The distillery was modernised between 1966 and 1974. It continued producing whisky until 1983 when the distillery fell silent.
Ten years later, the distillery was acquired by its current owners, Gordon & Macphail. After running numerous trials the first batch of spirit under the new ownership was produced in 1998. The 10 year old single malt was awarded 'Best single malt 12 year and under' by the World Whisky Awards in 2014.
By using a fermentation period of between 3 and 5 days, cloudy wort, shell and tubes to cool the spirit and a reflux ball, the character of Benromach is robust and bold.
