Benromach 10 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nose: Soft with a leather undertone. Quite savoury, with gravelly notes, beeswax polish, linseed oil, oak bark and moss.
Palate: Quite dry, like the nose, but with some dark sugar sweetness. Spiced fruit cake and the leather from the nose are joined by a rich earthiness, coal dust and some green leafiness.
Finish: Green oak, ashes and sweet waxed apples.
Comment: Not what I expected, with much more weight and smokiness than the normal 10yo. Rich and leathery, with a solid dry core.

This was the best whisky I have ever tasted. I’ve tried a lot of them and this one has just the right balance of smoke for me, alongside a rich quality taste and smell, exhibiting all the right notes - leather, old barrel and all that business. The 57% strength doesn’t make it too strong to drink and adding a drop of water exhibits an entirely different character altogether. Don’t nose it for too long, just dive right in and quaff it. 10/10.
Overall it is a great scotch. It's complex with the smoke, surprisingly not alcoholic even though it is 57% ABV. That being said, the feeling of youth is there with overall shallower smells and flavors - which is by no means a bad thing, it has it's place as well! I found it to be a great pairing with food.
You know the words they use to describe explosions in comics? "KA-BOOOM!" "BLAAM!" "KAARRUMP!"? Well, I just found a new one........"BEENNNNROMACH!!!" or maybe it should be "BENROOOMMACH!!!" Either way, after you've had a dram of this, Superman will appear like a mere mortal. Wonderful stuff!
Never feel compelled to review anything, but just had to on this. Easily the best whisky I have ever had. The leather mentioned is spot on. Will get a couple more to save for times when loved ones come over.
Bought for my dad, who has been a whiskey drinker for many many years, who said this is the most amazing whiskey he has ever had! Very strong so needs to be mixed with water but said the flavours are just amazing! Has asked for another bottle.
Fantastic, had to buy another.
This is a great whisky. I spent a good twenty minutes just nosing it before actually drinking any. It''s well balanced and very complex. Very glad I got a bottle.
Absolutely brilliant. Finally tried it in a recent whisky show and I got to say it was the most characterful whisky for me the whole evening. Nice balance of fruit and subtle smoke,with a whiff of carefully imparted sherry cask essence (the lovely grapy savory note). Brilliant stuff
