Benromach distillery is Speyside’s smallest - located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres, in north-east Scotland. Just two experienced distillers passionately hand-craft Benromach Single Malt.

The distillery is owned a managed by Gordon & MacPhail - a family business for over 100 years.

So, enough of the background, now the dram...

This is the the world's first bottled Single Malt to be fully certified as organic. It has no age statement and is bottled at 43%. However, the 'organic' tag isn't why I tried it or why I am writing this review, instead it's because it is a cracking dram. Forget the fact that its organic, but it on the taste and quality.

Colour: Deep golden

Nose: Fudge and fruit, slight oak, spicy, melon and apple. Amazing nose!

Mouthfeel/Texture: Delicate and light, smooth and filling

Palate: Toffee and fruit. Very smooth and elegant, slightly spicy

Finish: Medium long, smooth and fresh, slight wood. Very satisfying

This whisky is a big surprise! Smoother than Roger Moore and very elegant. Comes in one of the sexiest tubes on the market. Please try it - you’ll be reaching for more.

The Organic bottling is enjoyable not bad at all, but the 10yo from Benromach is pretty nice stuff too.
