The newly released 10 year old from Gordon and MacPhail's Benromach distillery. This was matured for the first nine years in 4/5 bourbon and 1/5 sherry casks before a year in sherry casks.
Nose: Dry, barley, big on malt and oak. Dry pine, fruity. A tad spirity. Sweet spices after a time and a hint of puckering prune from the sherry cask and maple fudge.
Palate: Barley, slightly herbal, a little fruit, grassy. Big on malt, ground ginger.
Finish: Mouthwateringly bittersweet. Ginger, dry sherry, almost hoppy after a while.
Overall: A great whisky, its maturity belies its 10 years of age and the sherry finish has done wonders.

I didn't enjoy this as much as everyone else it seems! I liked the unique earthy notes to it & the very mature sherry elements. I always feel like it's a cop out to bottle it shy of 46% .... maybe i've just been drinking too long!

One of the best I've tried. Like Glenfarclas, that dunnage/damp Earth note comes through and gives an immediate sense of class and quality. More peaty and smokey on the nose and finish than I would have thought but that's not a bad thing imo. Very well balanced, some red fruits and sherry notes but with a little water the vanilla and bourbon influence comes through. Nothing dominates but lots going on. I have paid more for less . . . well done Benromach

I tried the heavy peated 10 year a while ago and found it to be very one dimensional but with this classic 10 year that is not the case.Definitely sherried but with a beautiful charred oak, scorched honey ,dry herbal finish.Not as fruity as some sherried whiskys but very complex for just 10 years old a quality bottle indeed very happy with this.

Very good overall. Close but not quite *there*. For me the finish was lacking, it is a little bitter at the end. The nose and initial palate feel like they're taking you on a familiar journey, but it doesn't quite close the loop. Good effort though, and a fair price as well, better than many in this range that I have tried so far.

Damn this is good.......bloody good !!!!!!

This is not a 10y ..... Smooth, complex, well balanced and the list goes on... Skip the Hazelburn 12 and go straight for this, you`ll save and have a pretty similar experience.Just go get it...

Being a pensioner and living in South Africa at an unbelievably dismal GBP exchange rate, Benromach 10 is not something I can routinely afford. It came to me by way of a special birthday gift. Having been a single malt lover for more than 30 years, I can honestly say that Benromach 10 is one of the best taste experiences I have ever had.Vernon VartyCape Town

Superb substitute for a birthday for which numbers no longer matter...who needs cake?

So far, this has been the best "bang for the buck" whisky for me. If the label didn't state "10 years" i would've set it higher due to how long it lasts and its complexety. Perfect amount of smoke hits you at first, followed by sweet and malty notes that develops into a pleasant aftertaste. Leaves you wanting more. The magic of independent distilleries :)

Recommended by my local wine merchant (from whom I buy many cigars) as a good accompaniment for a good cigar. Is it? Yes. I like a smooth whisky that has no effect on the back of the throat. This is it - my new favorite whisky. May even be worth the long drive to the distillery to shake the hands of the 3 distilers. Only rated 9/10 as there might just be a better 10 YO out there.rite whiskey

For it's age the Ben 10 packs loads of nose, flavour, and lingering taste, so I agree with the MoM chaps. It's young and a tad fiery but, for the money, its one of the very best currently. You won't be wasting your money on this dram.

Good Day, I have been a whiskey drinker for many years, not an expert by any means, but I know what I like. I have tried many Malts and have found some poor, some adequate, others good as is bound to happen. However, this is the first time I have tried "Benromach" and it gives me pleasure to tell you that this is, without doubt the best I have tasted in my 40 years experienced. It is so smooth with a mellow taste and a afterglow that warms from the depths to every pore as it rises over the upper reaches of the body. I tried, as I have with other whiskeys, to down in one a double measure (uncouth) "Benromach" is the only one I ahve found that does not hurt. It flows and glows withe every drop. An indescribably pleasure to savoir.

Incredible whisky - well done that distillery! Far more complex than its age and price-tag would have you believe.

This is a superb whisky, it is just so well made. I would highly recomend it.

Quality beverage. I can sip on this for eternity.

I just cannot get enough of this stuff. Just the right balance of smoothness with a hint of smokiness. Easy drinking and a joy every time. On my 3rd bottle.

Beautiful in every way

I discovered this whisky on a whim, and what a fortunate accident. The nose has an exceptionally true malt feel, seriously true toasted malt, but that is a very nice part. Smooth, sweetness and a finish that is welcome to linger as long as it wants. So good I had to visit the distillery. It is a light whisky, it dances on the palate like wind on grass, and refreshes as it breezes through.I did not see the organic on here... that is a unique whisky by this distillery.
1st August 2014
Gentle sherry and hints of peat in the nose. The palate is consistent with sherry and fruity notes .Medium finish with dry sherry. Overall a superb 10yo, and the sherry finish is craftily done.

Great dram for the price. Has to be one of the best 10 year olds out there
7th July 2014
-I had always thought of 10 as a bit on the young side, but this is a delight, not least as I am not a great fan of much peat(this has a bare hint) especially in the Summer months.....This however nicely balanced and -for my taste- a big improvemnet on the 'standard' Romach 12y.o.
31st March 2014
its so smokey hp 12 smoke and sweet like a glenfarlas its just smashing new fav and for the price unbeatable value

This really is one of the most enjoyable 10 y.o. Speyside whiskies out there. The combination of smoke and sherry is handled expertly and, considering that it is from Speyside's smallest distillery, the level of quality here is simply amazing. Better than most of its peers. A must-try for all Speyside lovers.
29th July 2013
This is really a good single malt. It is hard to believe that it is only 10 y.o. I will surely by myself another bottle as soon as possible.

On my scotlandtour this summer i decided to by myself a really good scotch single malt. I went to a whisky shop and tried a lot of samples. As my first choise I bougt this Benromach. It was delicous, and all the scottich men around me recommended this. It is absolutely the best 10 y.o. single malt I have ever tried. I love it. Love from Norway.
First real whisky I ever bought. To be honest it's my favourite Speyside distillery. Unlike most distillers who make substandard expressions of their generally good whisky, Benromach's expressions and varieties are amazing (albeit I haven't tried them all). Infact I'd even say that this is the worst of the ones I've tried, which is backwards because it's a wonderful dram!
31st January 2012
I have never liked whisky but at the 2009 Good Food Show in Birmingham my sister encouraged me to have a taste and wow what a lovely drink! It's smooth almost sherry like with a whisky kick - I'm now a complete convert, at least to Benromach Single Malt!
13th April 2010
A lovely dram - one of the best 10 year olds I've tasted for a long time. More sherry on the nose than the colour would suggest and then a smooth mouth-coating fruity, smoky, spicy sensation that lingers for quite a while. Well worth a try!
