The first organic Speyside single malt

Benromach started in 1898… smack dab in the middle of the Great Scotch Whisky Depression. After a few years of floundering, they pulled themselves up by their collective kilts and hit full steam by 1911. The facility changed hands a few times to mixed success. But in 1993, Gordon and MacPhail purchased the site and started refurbishing things in 1997. They officially reopened — with a ceremony conducted by Prince Charles, no less — on their 100th anniversary in 1998, and the first "new" bottling was issued in 2004. Today they produce a wide range of Whiskies of various wood and aging combinations.

Benromach Organic is a lot of things, but at its core it is a Speyside single malt Whisky. It was the first Speyside to officially earn the "organic" designation. Can you taste "organic" in the dram? You decide. We think that you are more likely to taste its handcrafted nature, the fact that it is one of the rare single malts to use only virgin oak casks, and its spicy, youthful nature.

This is called a NAS whisky but the packaging has distillation and bottling years, I can presume that mine is a 5 year old expression. I've seen 7 year bottles in bars though.

This smells its age. Very grassy and green, lemon, ginger, followed by an earthy/spicy quality like cedar. None of the rounded, cakey qualities of older expressions.

Dry entry, black pepper, lemon zest, mineral water, green apples. Finish is clean, herbal, savory.

This is an interesting example of unique qualities that young whisky has. Very bright, astringent, but in an appealing way.

Benromach is great, although this specific bottle reminded me too much of schnapps/grappa rather than a scotch.
