Tasting Two Benromachs - Benromach 10YO and Benromach 1976
Back on the tasting bandwagon with a couple of whiskies from a distillery I particularly enjoy, Benromach. I visited Benromach in 2012 where I had the chance to try many of their whiskies and meet the passionate people that run the distillery. Owned by Gordon and Macphail, Benromach has been putting out some really decent expressions in the past few years, and they have recently gone on a campaign to identify the 'fingerprint' that connects older expressions of Benromach and the ones that the distillery now produces since their takeover. G&M have always been passionate about whisky and history, and it is their passion for this heritage that has led them to model their style on what they believe the classic old Speyside 'peated' style would have been like.
So what better way to identify this fingerprint than to try two Benromachs side by side, one older one and one newer one? So here it is, a tasting of the Benromach 10YO and a very revered 1976 vintage!
