  1. notesofmalt scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Benromach 10 years, original bottling, 43% alc. Ageing: ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks

    Nose: Unexpectedly smoky, farm and country air, fertilizer, some cheese. But also a bit salty. Fruity aromas then come through. Slightly perfumed, i.e. artificially fruity. Milk chocolate, apricots and vanilla. Surprisingly complex for a ten year old single malt.

    Palate: BBQ sauce, smoked fish and licorice. But also a certain sweet/sour fruit - maybe raspberries. Then 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 beautiful. I can unreservedly recommend it. 85/100 points

    Color intensive old gold
    Nose : caramel, toffee, spicy, dry wood like cedar, citrus fruits (lemon), delicate peat and smoke
    Mouth : well balanced, caramel, sherry, spicy finish

    To much classical to be a real great whisky, but interesting.
