Style Single Malt Whisky

Benriach 10 Year Old

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.

Reviews for Benriach 10 Year Old
Too light and one-dimensional.
I have an older bottle with the red lettering on it. Well-oxygenated and rested, this is what might be expected. It is light and has very little cask-influence except to soften the original distillation.
Almost undetectable sherry
Precious little oak.
The bottle mentions first fill casks, but no mention of how long the whisky sat in these casks. Thankfully, the base whisky is nicely-made, but given the lack of Speyside characteristics, I strongly recommend the Bruichladdich Blue Bottle as a more distinctive and tasty alternative.
I wouldn’t object to this if I was given it in a friend’s house, but I don’t think I would buy it again.

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.

Lovely
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.

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.
