BenRomach

Delivering that true Speyside sweetness with a less obvious subtle smokiness is what Benromach does so well! This family run distillery set out to create whisky that is reminiscent of days gone past. The reopening of this distillery signaled the rebirth of a lost style of Speyside single malt where peat was used.

They like to keep things simple. They believe there are only four ingredients that create this fantastic whisky…the finest grown barley, water from the Romach Hills, yeast, and the distiller’s touch!

 ​Check out these four fantastic offerings:

Benromach 10 Year Old – 43% 70cl

“Only ever matured in the finest oak casks, our signature TEN YEAR OLD single malt delivers delicate forest fruits and creamy malt, a touch of smoke and rich, lasting sherry notes.”

Benromach Organic 2012 – 46% 70cl

”The world’s first certified organic single malt whisky since 2006. UK Soil Association accredited from start to finish, Benromach Organic is matured in Virgin American Oak and gives sweet, malty notes with creamy pepper, banana, coffee and cocoa flavours.”

Benromach Cask Strength Batch 4 Vintage 2009 – 57.2% 70cl

“Our cask strength single malt whisky delivers sweet sherry aromas, dark forest fruits and subtle chocolate with a palate of black pepper, red berries, zesty orange and soft smoke.”

Benromach 15 Year Old – 43% 70cl

“Only ever matured in the highest quality oak casks, our FIFTEEN YEAR OLD single malt whisky gives cracked pepper, charred oak, apples, dark chocolate and forest fruits with rich sherry notes and a touch of smoke.”

Tomatin French Collection

If you’re a big fan of special cask finishes, you may want to check out Tomatin’s newly released French Collection! Created to showcase what exceptional French spirits can do to impart their array of flavour profiles on some of the best Highland whisky!

This collection has been 12 years in the making!  It is a 4 part release, with the first three already out in the wild. The 4th installment will be released later on this year.

Here is a rundown on the current releases:

THE MONBAZILLAC EDITION

Distilled on 25th April 2008, the Monbazillac aroma dances between notes of dark, maple syrup and intense espresso, balanced with cinnamon baked apples. On the palate, there is a sweet cereal flavour combined with sweet milk chocolate and honeycomb ahead of subtle spices and emerging nutty flavours. The finish is rich with walnut and maple syrup.

THE SAUTERNES EDITION

Distilled on 19th September 2008, the Sauternes brings a burst of peach and apricot on the nose, calmed by rich Manuka honey. The sweet honey continues on the palate accompanied by coconut and ginger. The finish is wonderfully sweet and fresh with a syrupy mouthfeel indicative of the Sauternes wine that once occupied the cask.

THE RIVESALTES EDITION

Distilled on 19th September 2008, the Rivesaltes marries our characteristic fresh fruit notes incredibly well with the sweet nutty flavours for which Rivesaltes wine is known. Contrasting sweet and bitter flavours dominate the palate, held together by an underlying barley aroma. The finish is velvety with the flavours from the palate lingering for some time.

The 4th and final release will be The Cognac Edition. 

The French Collection is a great example of Tomatin’s dedication to craft and excellence, with each expression showcasing how respective finishing cask affects the original spirit – a concept Tomatin championed in the Cuatro series released in 2014, which was very well received.

We have produced four remarkable expressions which will appeal to not only whisky enthusiasts and collectors alike, but also a wider audience. On top of this, we are also very excited for consumers to be able to experience each expression with the ambisonic content series launched today.
