The Benromach 100 proof, is the bigger more robust sibling of the standard 10 year old bottling reviewed here, this is bottled for released at 57% and it’s a great addition to the Benromach line up.
The nose immediately offers up Dundee cake, along with dark chocolate, bitter orange marmalade, polished wood, plum jam and five spice.
Moving onto the palate and it is all big flavours, red fruits, cocoa, dried figs, slightly woody (chewing on a pencil at school) with a black pepper warmth.
On the finish there’s menthol and a real touch of spice.
Wrapping up this review it’s a lovely whisky with a great mouthfeel, the extra ABV over the 10YO really helps coats the mouth and for £44 at time of publishing this offers a lot of whisky for a good price, available here.
