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.

    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.
