Benromach Contrast: Organic 2014 – A Symphony of Nature’s Elegance in Every Sip

In the heart of Speyside, where the rich history of Scotch whisky unfolds, Benromach Organic emerges as a testament to the marriage of tradition and innovation. This exquisite single malt whisky, aged exclusively in new oak barrels, transcends the boundaries of conventional craftsmanship.

Lingering in the aromatic embrace of Virgin Wood, or fresh oak as it is colloquially known, Benromach Organic acquires a myriad of captivating flavors that elevate the whisky experience to unparalleled heights. Unlike its counterparts matured in used casks, this expression boasts a robust flavor profile, generously infused with sweet spices. However, the true star of the show is the natural vanillin from the oak, imparting a remarkably pleasant vanilla character.

The use of new oak barrels is a practice seldom embraced by established Scottish distilleries, primarily due to cost considerations. In contrast, Benromach has boldly embraced this method since 2006 when it introduced the groundbreaking Benromach Organic, a whisky aged solely in new oak. The motivation behind this choice was not merely to follow a trend but to create a whisky that is 100% organic.

To achieve the coveted organic certification, the distillery sought out protected and certified organic oak forests in the United States. This meticulous sourcing allowed Benromach Organic to become the first single malt whisky to attain such a comprehensive organic certification from the UK Soil Association. By shunning the use of second-hand casks, Benromach ensures that its whisky aligns with stringent organic standards.

Staying true to the traditional Speyside whisky-making methods, Benromach takes its time in every aspect of the production process. Prolonged fermentation periods, slow distillation, and outdoor chilling of the spirit are just a few examples of the deliberate craftsmanship behind each drop of Benromach Organic. Notably, the malt is also generously peated, adding a nod to the old-school Speyside style, albeit without compromising on environmental standards.

In terms of flavor, Benromach Organic strikes a harmonious balance between the boldness of American bourbon and the refined elegance of classic Scottish single malt. The encounter between the new oak casks and Speyside spirit results in a flavor profile that stands as a unique testament to Benromach’s innovative approach.

As a testament to its global acclaim, Benromach Organic has garnered a dedicated following worldwide. Its release to the Swedish market, with a substantial 6000 bottles for the shelves at Systembolaget, marks a significant moment for enthusiasts. The captivating copper hue of the whisky foreshadows the sensory journey within. Cheers!
