Product details

A lesser-spotted smoky Speysider from the Benromach distillery, which was mothballed four times in between its opening in 1900 and 1993, when it was acquired by Gordon & MacPhail – though it took five more years for it to become functional again.

While Benromach’s releases often boast a subtle whiff of smoke, this particular edition was produced using heavily peated barley, so it’s much more pronounced. The single malt was then matured in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels from 2009 to 2020, and released as part of the distillery’s Contrasts series. Smouldering smoky notes sit alongside tropical, creamy flavours imparted from the maturation.
