Where there's smoke, there's Benromach
 
According to tradition old as time, Speyside Whiskies always had a smoky soul. Local Whisky-makers malted their own barley and they used peat when they were low on coal. Somewhere in the last few decades, the smokiness almost vanished, but when the Benromach Distillery was revived once again, the wonderful charater of peat and smoke came back. But as they say, peat ain't everything, so it helps that Benromach stands a shout away from the pure crystalline water of the Chapelton Spring; and that the Malt Masters use two kinds of yeast (brewer's and distiller's).
 
The method of Whisky-making at Benromach is as unique and careful as it was in 1898, when the distillery first opened. They use no fancy computers or even pressure gauges; they depend on all of their senses to know when the Spirit is perfect. So, when it comes to their Peat Smoke release, you won't be surprised how lavish the flavors and aromas are. This Spirit a rarity with high levels of peat smoke (67 ppm). It was distilled in 2008 and put away in ex-Bourbon barrels until it was bottled in 2017. This unique Single Malt should, obviously, be enjoyed neat, and if you have a cigar nearby, have at it. Slainte!
