Whisky Reviews for Benromach 10-year-old
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.70 points
- Insane aroma profile that the taste becomes and stays spicy. Interesting whisky, where you can always discover new flavors.
A 10 year old who has something to offer.
very light smoke that quickly withdraws. Then seasoning and a sherry note. Fruity apricot and raisins (as sweet dry fruits) and milk chocolate. Light vanilla and some nut flavors. Very light herbal aroma (heather). Citrus and orange in the background. - Interesting aroma profile that develops over time. Here I always find new flavors ...
slightly peppery after a few seconds, but goes away quite quickly. Warming the throat. Spices and sherry dominate. Oak tree that goes over to nuts. Slightly creamy and oily. The flavor of the fruit fades into the background. Some malt note.
spicy and oak influence have long been dominant. A slightly malty note remains. Some vanilla and nut chocolate. (Very light) smoke occurs very late.
- Widely touted as one of the great ten year olds, this Benromach has a large reputation to uphold. And uphold it does. The nose is greeted with a wonderful savoury note. Despite the first fill barrels, the sherry is smoothly integrated after the bottle is allowed time to air. Further notes include leather, caramel, a pinch of saltiness and even some very gentle pepper in the background. For a "lightly" peated whisky, the smoke is not shy on the palate. This is followed by an interesting mix of sweet and bitter flavours. It is possibly one of the least fruity whiskies I have ever tried. For a 43% bottling, the flavours are still full and vibrant. The smoke continues into the finish alongside a strong bitterness, like the lingering taste of pu erh tea. The BFYB claims are not mistaken.
- Amazingly complex, despite the low voltage, essential, great daily dram
flowers, wet cereal (grain), sweet accent, light peat, pralines, pear
hint of sherry, biscuits, chocolate, licorice, old oak, vanilia, nuts, smoke on the back, pleasant touch of peat
raw dough, coffee, medium long, orange
- A good and honest 'old style' speyside whisky. Good value for money. For a 10 year old quite some depth to it, matured in bourbon with a finish in sherry casks, you can tell, the sherry influence is there. All in all in good balance, the smoke is the dominating factor in a good way, reminds me of bacon. The first bottle is nicely going along, went out to get another, like it that much.
