A smart packaging job for this distillery-bottled expression of Benromach 10yo, which has been a big hit since its introduction in late 2009. Well done to G&M for making the standard release strength 43%.

Benromach 10 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    • Nose:

      Toffee and butterscotch with hints of liquorice and green apple.

    • Palate:

      The liquorice and green apple continue from the nose, joined by a maltiness, smoke and spicy cardamom and white pepper.

    • Finish:

      Warming, with the fruit and spice slowly dissipating to leave a delightful malty smokiness.

    • Comment:

      Benromach have succeeded in their aim of going back to the classic Speyside style of the 1960s, and the whisky has a very traditional feel about it.

  • Tasting Notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    • Nose:

      You know what, this greasiness and this mineral smokiness just cannot not make us think of modern Springbank, which can’t be bad news. I find some smoked tea, touches of truffles, graphite oil, quite some fresh barley (or is that porridge?) and quite some raw wool and grass. Old school for sure!

    • Mouth:

      Excellent, smoky, mineral, phenolic, waxy and displaying various citrus fruits without any excessive sweetness. Excellent body at 43% vol. Then more liquorice, a little sweet mustard (cassis flavoured like they make in Burgundy) and quite some bitter oranges.

    • Finish:

      Quite long, smoky, with notes of agaves and minerals.

    • Comments:

      Tastes like a true islander. We used to say that Lochside was the Springbank of the east, now it’s rather Benromach. I’m a fan. Same score as before. SGP:553 - 87 points.

    Recieved a bottle. for Christmas. I've never been a whiskey drinker but from first taste of Benromach I was hooked. This Whiskey is not over powering allowin, the novice to experience and enjoy the tastes without the feeling of a blow torch being aimed at the back of the throat. A well crafted flavor some Whiskey I would recommend to all .

    I received a bottle of this as a gift for my 40th birthday. I like whiskey, but wasn't much of a scotch drinker at that time. I let this bottle sit on the shelf for a few months. I opened it finally with the intention to drink it only for special lasted 3 days, best whisky I had in a long time.

    The whisky is superb with as many say a hint of smokiness which is a little unexpected from a Speyside whisky. However I can't find any of the nonsense that the Whiskyfun reviewer stated - I mean, 'graphite oil?' Really? I have used Molykote and other iterations of it many times in my engineering life and believe me anything that smells like that isn't going in my mouth. Nor 'raw wool,' which is pretty rotten to be honest until it's been cleaned - by which time it will smell of the detergent used. It tastes like a good whisky should. It's smooth, has a hint of smoke and leaves a pleasant aftertaste.

    It's a sweet, spicy, with just a little hit of light smoke with light peat taste. Great beginner step into Islay whisky. Great bang for your buck.

    Nose: Heathery, slightly smokey, peaty with whiffs of sweetness and a lovely caramel. Giving way to stewed fruits, sultanas and vanilla and finally getting basil. A joy to nose! Palate: Sweet xmas cake mixture, grapefruit and a whiff of smoke pushing thru the sherriness. Quite a raw beast this one … Finish: Very fiery and peppery with a dry tanin aftertaste – long! Overall: “Fiesty one you are!” comes to mind with the 10YO. A very drinkable dram.

  • En_robot 3 May 2014

    Made by two blokes in the smallest distillery in speyside..I can understand springbank comparisons with the maltiness present on nose and palate . Some other reviews led me to believe I would be getting a peaty speysider, this is not the case IMO. Develops into a fudgey fruity malty dram, very smooth and easy going down. Would not hesitate in buying this again. I also believe this to be Non Chill Filtered and no e150. Natural goodness

  • Scotch Fan 22 September 2013

    Another great young Speysider from the distillery of Benromach. Vibrant nose with grass, citrus, and some peat. Same expressions continue to persist on the mouth; however, there is mineral and some sweetness involved this time. Long, smoky finish, which is decidedly very pleasant. Quite approachable and easy-drinking peated Speyside, a great entry-level Single Malt Scotch with a distinct character.

  • Shaun,Hull 18 December 2012

    Super smooth with a lovely balance and warmth. A little smoke on the finish too. Well worth a try at this offer price.

  • Dave Miller-Crook 19 October 2012

    I tried a tipple at the Scotland Boat show in Kip Marina and was blown away by the superb taste of the 10 year old. I tried the rest of the fleet which were all really good but the the original 10 year Old was the best for me, smooth and warm. I'm going to the shop in Forres next time I'm passing to buy a bottle.

  • Ian M 6 May 2012

    I remember 2002 walking through barley fields in Roseile (nr Benromach - Forres) Now drinking the fields bounty is romantic but more striking is the quality of this malt, its nose is malt, leather - black polish ? Taste gives Oak, cinnamon, spirited vanilla, ending with a freshly lit cigar. Finish - Long smoke, dry, raisins. Really impressed and suprised with this expression. Touch of peat in the spey region is interesting.

  • Steve 18-2-11 18 February 2011

    Very Peaty not what you would expect from a Spey.
