Benromach 8, 2011-2019, 1st Fill Sherry Hogshead 400, 59.1% – OB for The Whisky Exchange

Another single cask from Benromach distillery! Don’t mind if I do! And while I say that, let me also tell you that I tried this one blind. It was another sample I got from BvdP, and I tried it right … Continue reading

Benromach 11, 2009-2021, First Fill Bourbon Cask, 48% – OB for Germany

About half a year ago I reviewed a Benromach 11 for Germany too. That one was drawn from a sherry cask, at cask strength. This one isn’t a single cask, and has been brought down to 48%. Which just happens … Continue reading

Benromach 11, 2008-2020, 1st Fill Sherry Hogshead 850, 57.7% – OB for Germany

Last year RvB shared this Benromach. He’s quite a fan of the distillery so he went to some length to get a bottle from Germany, since German shops aren’t normally allowed to ship to The Netherlands. Something about open borders … Continue reading

A little while ago a friend of mine (RvB) bottle-shared half his bottle and after someone got there first, I took the remaining 25cl. Generally, Benromach is a very solid whisky that works very well with both bourbon and sherry … Continue reading

Benromach 12, 40%

With my family and I being on holiday in Scotland, in Findhorn, I had to pick some nice drams for the evenings. I might sound weird to bring whisky to Scotland, but with prices there and here, and with there … Continue reading

BTC #3: Benromach 2008-2017, 9yo, 59.5% – OB for Whiskysite.nl

After a very acceptable score yesterday, to my standards at least, we went in for a non-Highland whisky. Not much of an introduction, since we go in blind… Sniff: I got quite a lot of peat on the nose, but … Continue reading

Autumn clearance

Well, not really a clearance since that would involve big discounts. The misses and I have decided that it’s finally time to start doing some construction on our attic. It’s been in the pipeline for a few years but we’ve … Continue reading

Benromach 1974, 41yo, Sherry Cask, 49.1%

Finally, I decided to try this baby. G&M/Benromach sent it to me a few months ago, right about when all the other reviews came online. Somehow I’ve not been tasting a lot of whisky lately and I wanted to properly … Continue reading

Benromach releases a Sassicaia finished whisky from their warehouses every year or so. They don’t come with an age, but they use a vintage instead. They go with vintages for a lot of the wood finished whiskies, while the older … Continue reading
