Benriach 10 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Nutty, rich, damp earth. Almonds and hazelnuts, with appealing green-apple freshness aromas of lemon and grapefruit, lifted by cinnamon, nutmeg and toffee. Lovely and fresh.
Palate: Floral and spicy, with clean, bright fruit: green apples, pears, honeysuckle. There’s some spiciness in there, too – a little black pepper, a hint of clove and a touch of crème brûlée.
Finish: The spiciness hangs on, but the overriding character is fresh, clean fruit. Refreshing and lip-smacking.
Comment: For me, this is classic Speyside, with its gentle character and refreshing fruit. Well balanced and very well made.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Colour: Crisp summer gold.
Nose: A fresh and lively combination of crisp, green orchard fruits, stem ginger and hints of tangerine mellows to creamy vanilla with a delicate note of mint and a gentle twist of citrus; all held together with a sweet barley back note.
Palate: Warm toasted oak spices flood through green apple skins and dried apricots, ripening to hints of peach and soft banana. Subtle touches of aniseed and lemon zest create a contrasting edge to the fruit and add an intriguing character to the long, crisp barley finish.

Also purchased the 20yr miniature and found the 10 year to be much more enjoyable. In its price range I'm yet to find a better single malt.
Wow I have to admit this whisky suprised me with how good it is. I wasn't expecting much after I had Benriach 16 previously which I bought after being highly reccomendend it and I didn't like it. But the 10 is lovely: beautiful colour, really fruity smell and really fruity Taste. Very smooth for a 10 year old although it does have some slight kick which you can feel in the after taste on your tongue, but it goes away after not too long. This is a nice dram overall.
Got one for Christmas- bought two in January
Don't normally like Whiskey but I was introduced to Benriach at the Whiskey shop on York some years ago. It is the only whiskey I would drink. Smooth, not harsh. Warming and nice to sit back with on a cold evening.
Really smooth 10 yo. Fresh citrus on the nose with a hint of caramel. Light on the palate with black pepper coming through whilst skipping off the tongue. Fruity after-taste with a lingering taint of cloves. Surprisingly delightful!
The floral, bright fruits really come through with a splash of water. Taken over by that spicy finish afterwards. Beautiful kick.
nice well priced single malt. Just a pinch of water and the whisky develops well
This is an excellent whisky for the price. But I note that, under 'facts', you state that this whisky has 'colouring'. Please note that the label on the bottle states that there is no colouring in the whisky.
