BenRiach 10 Year Old Bottling Note

The flagship expression from the BenRiach distillery. This 10 year old Speyside single malt is drawn from ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks after at least a decade of slumber, resulting in a malt that shows off the distillery's style wonderfully. Expect hearty barley backed up by orchard fruit and toasted almond, alongside just a hint of herbaceous oak.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Citrus-forward, with gingerbread and cinnamon in support.

Palate: Fried banana, brown sugar, powerful barley notes driving it all along.

Finish: Lasting hints of peppery malt and vanilla custard.

BenRiach 10 Year Old Reviews

Good value

Not terribly exciting but enjoyable. Sweet in flavour, pretty easy to drink with a light burn at the end. A fine everyday dram.

It’s Fantastic

This fantastic whisky needs 10-15 minutes out of the bottle with 2-3 drops of water to open up.

Nose: Strawberry raspberry blueberry buttered toast butterscotch vanilla aged wood.

Palate: With water tropical fruit (skittles) coconut butter scotch vanilla

Finish: A mild bitterness with vanilla white pepper and maple syrup.

For what this Whisky is which is a 10 yr old priced $55-$60 its 5 stars all day.

While not mind blowing, a very pleasant dram indeed, and for the price and age, hard to fault. Sweet nose with syrup sponge and custard or sometimes panettone. Sweet, gentle palate - sultana and pear, wisps of ginger and coconut.

Good every-day-dram

Great value for money, don't expect to be blown away (it's not an expensive whisky). For its price range it stands out as a really good whisky. Very malty, with a touch of pear and lemongrass on the nose. On the palate it's peppery, malty with a touch of vanilla covered fudge. The finish is warm and peppery. A great Bourbon-oak matured whisky (I, for one, can't pick up any notes from the sherry casks)

One of the best Speysiders!

I bought a bottle just because it was reduced by £5 and you were entered into a competition to visit the Benriach distillery. Single malts never disappoint but I wasn't expecting anything particularly special. But I'm so glad I got it as it's positively one of the nicest whiskies ever to pass my lips-especially unusual for me as I normally prefer peated Scotch! A really lovely sweet banana and barley flavour. Delivery was fast too. I also received a complementary 30ml measure of the peated Curiositas. This was my first time ordering from MOM, and I will certainly be ordering from here again in the not too distant future. Good job chaps at Master of Malt.

Would use again when entertaining.

Not the taste expected, with lingering after bite when swallowed. Many of my guests appreciated other qualities; so, not bad for "first run out of the gate." 🤗

My wife thuroughly enjoyed it. Nough said.

Best 10yr Speyside I have ever had. Would choose this over many a 12yr Scotch.

Daily Dram Summer Scotch

Bought only the sample but will soon buy the bottle. I am really surprised with this whisky, has a nice complexity and wood notes for such a young one. Loved how spicy and yet refreshing it is. Kind of a long sweet finish, that is my least favorite thing, and yet I recommend this as an awesome cost-benefit purchase. Note 87/100 for me.

21st April 2018

Dry and lively, good price.

Smooth and drinkable, just a bit light and underwhelming. Nothing wrong with it, nothing captivating either. The distilling is well done, and the booze is round and soft, but is apparent on the nose. Some dry citrus and apple, but no darker fruit. Hint of caramel, toffee, apple, some new oak herbs, dry dill, no smoke. Young and lively. Mixes well for a single malt.

2nd March 2018

Very fine Scotch whiskey with a smooth pallet.

I was given a bottle of the 10yr old BenRaich single malt, and with out knowing it's history felt that it was a likened to a very smooth Kentucky Bourbon. Although I like the peat flavor of some Scotch I would recommend this fine whiskey. Touched my palate, all the right ingredients with beautiful flavor.

Wow! I really love everything I have had from Benriach and this is no exception. This is just classic Speyside, raisins ,apples ,cinnamon,oak,even a hint of peaches all work in harmony. Amazing For a 10 year better than a lot of 12 years olds I have had from Speyside. Excellent dessert dram. Cheers! The Sugarbear

I thought I bought the smoky expression but hey, what a suprise!
For this price this is a really good speyside.

3rd December 2016

The best unpeated Benriach in my opinion -

Nose; Green Apples, Cirtus, very malt, Subtle Caramel

Taste; Strong Spice, Fresh Herbs, Ginger, Soft Lemon & Lime, Blam oil

Finish; medium, soft spice

I prefer the 10 year to the 16 & the 20 year, it has abit more kick and body. - My whisky blog

Buy it.

Very nice. Fruit cake and dried fruits. Lovely fresh citrus finish. Really decent drop for the price this one. Recommended. With a few drops of water obviously.

They've gone and done it again

I loved the 12, and was sad to see it go. It might be two years younger but this is even better than it's predecessor. It's a touch more spritely than the 12 but it's somehow richer at the same time. Time and time again this distillery keeps coming up trumps.

A decent everyday whisky.

28th November 2015

Decent dram

Enjoyed this well enough, especially at 43% and non-chillfiltered. Certainly there was plenty of fruit - green apples and pears and some spiciness, too. Maybe, just a touch too much of the green apples for me, though.

30th June 2015


Excellent for the price

12th June 2015

An everyday dram?

As much as I like Benriach I wasn't expecting much at this price point but boy was I wrong. At present this is my dram of 2015, so tasty and drinkable.

1st June 2015


Got a taste of this yesterday at Casc/Musa Whisky Mash: excellent, & possibly even better than the old 12, which was highly drinkable.
The future looks very promising for this distillery.
