Benromach 10 Year Old

Rich, Dried Fruits
In recent years, the small distillery in the north-west of Scotland's Speyside has gained more and more popularity. The Benromach 10 offers a good and affordable entry.
Benromach, now part of the independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail, is committed to traditional craftsmanship. They believe that making whisky by hand guarantees real character.
Benromach only uses first-fill casks for their whiskies: for the 10-year-old, 80% are bourbon barrels and 20% Spanish sherry casks. The pleasantly simple and uncluttered packaging and bottle design runs through all age groups.

After the nose has become accustomed to the smoke, we begin to perceive sweet aromas like sherry. After a while in the glass, light vanilla and caramel and a hint of toffee become noticeable.


At first, we have the feeling of an overripe, mouth-filling cherry in the mouth. Afterwards, the sweetness changes from a kind of white chocolate to a harsher dark chocolate. The smoke is almost no longer present, instead it subliminally accompanies the slightly leathery and dry feeling on the tongue.


Also in the medium-long finish the smoke is rather subliminal and flavours like honey, vanilla and toffee are dominant.


For a 10-year-old whisky, we are offered a lot here. A wide range of aromas, both in the nose and in the mouth, and a pleasant accompaniment of subliminal smoke, which we usually only know from older companions. Good whisky doesn't have to be old or cost much. Period.

83/100 - Excellent
