BENROMACH 10 Year Old New
BENROMACH 10 Year Old New. The mothballed Benromach distillery was acquired by independent whisky-bottlers Gordon and MacPhail in 1993 who set about restoring it to modern working order. Officially reopened by Prince Charles in 1998, bottling of the new malt began in 2004. The aim has been to produce a pre-industrial-scale style that reflects the character of a Speyside malt from before the 1960s. Maturation is in 80% Bourbon barrels and 20% Sherry hogsheads, with the final year in first-fill Oloroso casks. Critically-acclaimed and exhibiting a complexity and sophistication that belies its mere ten years of ageing, it was awarded a Gold in the World Whisky Awards 2014, “Best Speyside Single Malt and 12 Years and Under” category.
