Called in here and tried their Essential Tour for £12.50/person and did not regret this decision at all. Even though there is no photography, we happened to have a completely personal tour and since we already know a thing or two, that turned out to be just right. There is a great introductory DVD of both the distillery and Gordon & MacPhail, who are the owners. Instead of going over basics again, we could hunt for specialties of this distillery, and were tested on our knowledge a few times. Even though our guide Jim wondered why we ever bothered ("Why did you ever come up here? You know everything!"), we still learned something we did not know previously. After the tour, it was time for four Benromach expressions; especially the virgin oak expression (Benromach Organic) is quite unusual. Got all the notes we needed, and tried some more in the shop before it was time to go. Their shop has most of the Benromach expressions plus some souvenirs. If you like whisky, this is an excellent tour to book; I would return again for some more. 9.6 / 10
