Benromach 10 Years Old

The Benromach 10 years old is a Speyside whisky comprised of 80% Bourbon barrels and 20% Sherry hogsheads, it then spends it’s final year in first fill Oloroso casks and is bottled at 43%.

So here are my notes, the nose offers up peat (not expecting that), typical sherry fruit notes, butter biscuits, green apples and a caramel/burnt sugar sweetness, cereal, hay and milk chocolate.

The palate offers up sweet dried fruits, dark chocolate & bitter orange marmalade, a touch of spice (fresh ground black pepper), oak and smoke.

Onto the finish, there’s vanilla, peat smoke and that black pepper spice.

This is an extremely good whisky coming in at around the £30 mark and is available here.

Tasted as part of the #BenromachTT on twitter with thanks to Benromach and Steve Rush of The Whisky Wire for the sample.
