The Benromach 15 year old, the classic Speyside sherried dram with a touch of smoke is crowned Best Speyside Single Malt Scotch at WWA 2018.

Benromach 15 Year OldThe excellent sherried Speyside dram with a touch of smoke, namely the Benromach 15 year old, has been crowned the winner in the Speyside category at the World Whiskies Awards 2018 presentation recently held at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel in London.

The 15 year old expression was added to the Benromach core range of classic Speyside whiskies back in May 2015. Aged in a combination of first fill bourbon and sherry casks it is bottled at 43% ABV.

The World Whiskies Awards are held annually and aim to showcase the very best whiskies in each global category. The Benromach winning expression fought off fierce competition throughout several stages by world-renowned, expert judges and tasters.

Benromach Distillery Manager, Keith Cruickshank, said: "We are so pleased to have been awarded this prestigious accolade at the World Whiskies Awards for our Benromach 15 Years Old. We are proud of our core range of hand crafted single malts, which provide whisky lovers from across the globe a chance to discover a lost taste of Speyside.

"The award also comes at an important time in our history, as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of production at the distillery since it was reopened in 1998. We look forward to producing many more award-winning whiskies in the years to come."

The accolade comes just as the distillery celebrates its 20th anniversary year, marking 20 years since it was extensively refurbished and reopened again in 1998.

Of course this isn't the first World Whiskies Awards accolade for the Benromach distillery, the Benromach 10 Year Old was also recently honoured with a Gold in the Speyside 12 Years and Under category at the World Whiskies Awards.

You will find the Benromach 15 year old along with the current Benromach whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
