Top reviews for Benromach 10 Year Old:
— 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.
— Elegant, beautiful with a bit of peat and caramel.
— I don’t agree with the flavor spiral on this one. I definitely got some peaty mossy flavor like Laphroig but with a sweeter finish. I really like this Scotch for a cool night. Great warming drink without the harsh burn finish.

I don’t agree with the flavor spiral on this one. I definitely got some peaty mossy flavor like Laphroig but with a sweeter finish. I really like this Scotch for a cool night. Great warming drink without the harsh burn finish.
Heavily peated, yet very smooth.
I really liked this scotch. It was just a shot in the dark and it hit the mark. Nice sweet notes and not too peaty. The smokey oak notes were nice and not too strong which allowed the raspberry flavor to come through. The I liked it slightly chilled over an ice cube.
Love this scotch. It’s definitely a newer feel to an old style whiskey. The salty/sweet goes well with after dinner snack or even desert. My usual go to scotch is a bottle of Talisker Storm, this time I figured I would wander outside of my comfort zone, and I’m glad I did. It’s a very well balanced scotch (not TOO smoky or peaty, but not TOO clean) and it sits perfectly in between sweet caramel and savory/spicy, possibly making this my new all occasion scotch!
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.
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!
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.
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.
It was too strong on the ash flavor. The cask flavor completely overwhelmed all other flavors.
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.
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.
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.
Smoky and delicious
Beautiful finish easy to sip on.
Great and interesting speyside
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.
Nice, smokey and easy to drink
Elegant, beautiful with a bit of peat and caramel.
Soft mild smoke Some sweetness and oakiness . Very satisfying and rewarding
Mild smoke. Less sweet than most Speysides, more like a mild Highland w smoke.
