The original Benromach Distillery Company was founded in 1898 by Duncan McCallum of Campbeltown’s Glen Nevis distillery and F. W. Brickman, a spirit dealer in Leith. Sadly the distillery closed almost immediately and passed through many hands during the 20th century until finally it was acquired in 1993 by Gordon and MacPhail. By this point the distillery was an empty shell and it took the company 5 years to refit and reopen the distillery.
Benromach Peat Smoke Sherry Cask 2012
Distilled in 2012. Released in 2021
Lemon, honey and vanilla aromas perfectly balance the distinctive smokiness.
Deliciously sweet top notes and a hint of warming white pepper appear, followed by touches of stewed prunes, sultanas and raisins complemented by sherry undertones; rich fruits give way to smooth chocolate and a lingering edge of seriously gorgeous smokiness. Delicate hints of ginger develop on the tongue with a lingering edge of bonfire embers on the finish
