    Benromach 10 years, original bottling, 43% alc.
    Expansion: ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks
    Region: Speyside, Scotland

    Nose: Unexpectedly smoky, farm and country air, fertilizer, some cheese. But also a bit salty. Behind it then come through fruity aromas. Slightly perfumed, so artificially fruity. Milk chocolate, apricots and vanilla. Amazingly complex for a ten-year single malt.

    Palate: BBQ sauce, smoked fish and licorice. But also some sweet / sour fruit - raspberries maybe. Then there is Alpine milk chocolate with a slightly bitter touch of cold coffee.

    Finish: long with peat smoke, malt and salt.

    Conclusion: Unusual and individual, but very nice. Can I fully recommend.

  6. granella2003 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Has an initial maturation had in a combination of bourbon

    and sherry casks and then decanted to be in European oak Oloroso sherry casks

    for the final maturation phase. The result is a beautifully

    balanced whisky on formidable way the rich sherry character, the summer fruit

    flavors and creamy malt flavor exhibits.

    On the nose open rich sherry notes associated with

    mouthwatering delicious fruit and nut flavors. Delicious notes of spices, such as

    cinnamon and cloves, and green apples, malt, biscuit and a slight hint of peat

    aromas give more depth and complexity. The real festival of Benromach 10 Year begins on the

    palette, a spectacle for the taste buds. A blissful combination of woodland

    berries like raspberries and blueberries associated with influences of sherry

    and creamy malt, an intense peat undertone keeps everything

    together. The finish is of Benromach

    quality, good taste and long lasting. The sweet sherry flavor long

    lasting and at the end accompanied with a delicate peat flavor.
