Once you Benromach, you won’t go back… a Speysider with all the heritage and wood-smarts to boot.   
 
Benromach started in 1898… smack dab in the middle of the Great Scotch Whisky Depression. After a few years of floundering, they pulled themselves up by their collective kilts and hit full steam by 1911. The facility changed hands a few times to mixed success. But in 1993, Gordon and MacPhail purchased the site and started refurbishing things in 1997. They officially reopened —with a ceremony conducted by Prince Charles, no less— on their 100th anniversary in 1998, and the first “new” bottling was issued in 2004. Today they produce a wide range of Whiskies of various wood and aging combinations, all the way up to a 55-year old classic. The water comes from Chapelton Springs in the Romach Hills above the site. A genuine Cinderella Story that would bring a tear to the eye of any Whisky-lover.   
 
Time to brag. Benromach 10YO was voted the “Best Speyside single malt - 12 YO and under” at the World Whiskies Awards in 2014. Consider for a minute... they beat Glenlivet, they beat Macallan, they beat Balvenie … and Glenfiddich, and Glenfarclas, and Aberlour…. There are no less than 42 Speyside single malt brands out there and this little gem emerged as #1.   
 
This Whisky is chock-full of love — more than the majority of 10 YO malts. 80% of the spirit is aged in Bourbon barrels, and 20% in Sherry hogsheads… and that’s just for the first nine years. Then it is transferred to first fill Oloroso Sherry cask to finish for the last full year. That, my friends, is an uncompromising attention to detail that is seriously hard to find at this price point. Get a taste of this golden wonder now because I can hear Uncle Flaviar on the phone buying a case for himself and you do not want to miss out.

E,
Upon opening the bottle, you'll get a wif of sweetness, which is quite contrary to the smoky spiciness that'll slap your taste buds at first taste. Take another sip and let the spiciness settle down to really taste the sweet and warm aftertaste. Add a few drops of water and you'll notice that the subtle fruitiness comes out ever so slightly more to give the flavors a more rounded flavor. If, at first, you don't like the taste or the harsh punch to your throat, take another sip, and another, and soon you'll find an acquired taste for it. I would definitely not describe this whisky as mild or easy-to-drink (especially not to someone who's a whisky novice), but it does get deeper and better with each succeeding sip. The harsh punch and the smoky flavors at the beginning are similar to that of Laphroaig 10 but with a significant amount of spice and a sweet aftertaste. It's definitely a complex one, this Benromach 10.

Tamara,
Loved the smokey peat in this whiskey. It won the taste testing at our whiskey tasting party. Have purchased it a few times now and it is always our go to. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

Michael,
It tries very hard to please but only succeeds somewhat....the flavor loses itself in the harsh bite on the back of the throat.

Kind of reminds me of formaldehyde.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Nice peaty aroma and very smooth finish. Love the light spice and light smoke notes. Not overpowering. Fruity notes are well balanced in the forefront and finish

Light smoke light Pete I prefer more Hardy flavors but elegant after all

Great taste, smooth and goes down very well.

Thomas,
It was too strong on the ash flavor. The cask flavor completely overwhelmed all other flavors.
 
Larry
Larry,
Ah yes. Two thumbs up. Very interesting smoke filled flavor with a hint of sherry. I’ve not been a fan of traditional speyside scotch until now. I anxiously await the delivery of a full bottle.

Chris,
Top end taste at incredible value. One of the most interesting flavours I've ever had. Lots of sherry with a good hit of peat in there too.

Matthew,
Stays on your tongue a little longer than most. You can taste it for a while after. I mean that in a good way. Sherry, a bit of smoke, maybe honey? Nice thickness. Real good.

Good taste. Texture seems slightly thicker than others.

I don't often repeat bottles, but this was a no brainer. It has the power of youth, and the character of a malt a wee bit older than 10. Recommended for Springbank fans.

Mild smoke. Less sweet than most Speysides, more like a mild Highland w smoke.
