BENROMACH

Like many of the reborn distilleries of recent years, we need to talk about their recent offerings, which usually means 12 YO  or less. Benromach is not exception. So, let's talk about the recent 10 YO as an examplar of the revitalized spirit.

First, this is a solid Speyside dram, with all that this entials. It should be noted that this is a Sherried Whisky, but with a very light touch. All of the Whisky has been aged nine yeas in 80% Bourbon casks and 20% Sherry casks. Then all of that Whisky is vatted, then aged one additional year in 100% Sherry casks.

Why? Because they said so, that's why (obviously they are going for a particualr flavor profile). When you sip it you will find a lot of "outdoorsy" flavors, including grass, fresh herbs, malt, and ginger. On the palate the bittersweet taste of dark chocolate jumps out at you first, followed by the dread apricots and prune.

What does Benromach taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Benromach scotch whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
