    The Benromach 10 in a new jacket. I was a little afraid they would have changed the recept as well making me doubt this would be able to meet up with the high level of the previous batch and presentation.
    • Nose
      Great! This starts very mature and acts way older then 10yo. Initially I get loads of great sherry flavors like wood polish, tobacco and leather. After a while more youthful fruity flavors appear as well as a pleasant charcoal smoke, which gives this whisky a great and highly enjoyable whisky!
    • Taste
      Right in between smooth and full bodied! It gives light and more heavy flavors. Loads of red berry and strawberry a whiff of peat and mild spices. Very good and extremely palatable.
    • Finish
      Long, oaky, smoky and mature! Great quality cigar tobacco flavors as well as silky and coating fruits, spices and leather. This goes extremely well with a cigar I think!

      Well in short: this is one of those whiskies you’d always want an open bottle of! It offers a hell lot and this is without a doubt one of the best Core range starters out there!

    The whisky equivilent of hanging out in a Swedish sauna. Dry and satisfying. Well balanced with bitter and sweet too.

      Spicy and intense, but slightly musty.
      Herbal, delicate smoke that smells like freshly varnished wood after 15 minutes of breathing.
    • Taste
      spicy and heavy
    • Finish
      relatively short and dry

    Ralfy review 851: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHgRvKH8_00 (84/100).

    "Very much an old school flavor like you'll find in Glenugie's and North Port's. And Millburn's, another one. But lacking the yeastiness that you used to get in old whiskies. So if you want to taste the modern whisky which is an authentic throwback to the flavors of yesteryear's - and I'm talking about yesteryear is 30s, 40s and 50s, post prohibition times - then you've got a pretty good representation, or point of reference here, this 10 year old Benromach."
