Benromach 10 Year Old 750ml

NV Benromach 10 Year Old [click image to zoom]
image may not be actual bottle available

The first 10 year old release containing whisky produced entirely by the new owners. I love the interplay here between the malt, sherry and smoke, with all getting a chance to shine. A rich vanilla-tinged malty foundation, deep caramel, rhum agricole, an array of lush fruit, dark chocolate, along with grassy/hay note, honeysuckle, subtle spice (cinnamon, anise) and lingering earthy smoke. A vast improvement from the “Origins” release last year. I would only make two changes to make this whisky even better (and elevate to 90+ status): a couple more years on oak, and bottling at 46% and not chill-filtered. Still, this one of the best efforts from this distillery. Well done!

Country: Scotland

Region: Speyside
Although Speyside lies within the Scottish Highlands, it is considered its own whisky producing region due to the concentration of distilleries and similarities in style. However within Speyside there can still be a significant differences. There are those on the lighter side, such as Glenlivet and Singleton of Glendullan and those richer, rounder Scotches from Macallan and Aberlour.

Type: Scotch Whisky
Single malts, made by a single distillery and from 100% malted barley, comprise the majority of our selection. However you will also find a number of popular blended Scotches as well as some very special one-off, single barrel, single malts from independent bottlers.
