Benromach 30 Year Old
This fantastic thirty year old whisky from Speyside's smallest distillery is matured in first and refill sherry casks to create this rich dram which scored 95.5 out of 100 in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2013.
Nose: Rum-soaked raisins leading to roasted stone fruits and delicate spice highlighted with vanilla.
Palate: Rich Christmas cake covered in marzipan and icing with a sprinkling of winter spice on top!
Finish: The finish is long and rewarding with dried fruit and warm spice notes.
Overall: This is a great whisky which gives everything it's age suggests, incredible!
Had this off a v good friend on the morning of my wedding, really is sensational

Complex, sweet, and delicate. My wife got this for me when i turned 30. Whenever i drink it i think about the last 30 years... and they have been complex, a little bitter going down but finishes nice and lingers, but that makes the sweet that much sweeter!

I can see why this has consistently scored high points, it offers pretty much everything in 1 integrated package. My mother-in-law makes a wonderful steamed syrup sponge, if she were able to lightly smoke the vanilla custard then it would smell and taste like this :-)

I concur with the Chaps at MOM: this whisky is sweet and smooth but also presents subtle spices and a long-lasting tang. It's now February, cold, and a dram of this is warming my heart as I write. Delicious. Worth the premium.
