Benromach and Benriach
By Juliette Bentley
While evenings cool, shadows lengthen
and autumn is replete
Benromach and Benriach’s ministry
With whispers of soft peat
Remind us winter is coming
And so our hearts might thrill
At thoughts of drams to ward off
A cold night’s winter chill.
From the heart of Speyside, Morayshire
And the hill of the red deer
Burnside’s deep Springs from earth’s dark womb
glisten cool and clear
and though most Speyside tastings
lack the magic smoke
the handcrafting from copper stills
heartens most weary folk.
And so I say let’s raise a glass
And though we may find fault
Tonight I propose this simple toast
God bless the single malt.
I am bard of the Brisbane City Single Malt Sept and once a month write a poem as a toast to the Whiskies of the night's tasting. Tonight we will share Speysides and learn about the character of each. You can write about anything and while it may seem strange, even a malt can deserve some words.
