Benromach, a 10 year old dream

_DSC0361When a package arrives with two beauties inside. Whisky Beauties that is, my heart starts beating like a geek.

It’s time to review 2 samples from Benromach Distillery. I’m cutting the notes in two. In this review you can read about my findings about the 10yr old. The vintage will be joining soon!

  • Name: Benromach 10 yr
  • Country: Scotland
  • Type: Single Malt
  • Price: €37,-

On the website you can find the following information and more: Benromach is a Speyside distillery founded by Duncan McCallum and F.W. Brickman in 1898 and currently owned and run by Gordon and Macphail of Elgin. 

The first touch with the nose, lovely. Strong, but lovely. And then the enjoyment on the tongue. Oily and the complexity in combination with the smell. I’m seeing images in my head of a lovely summer at the sea. In company with incredible seabirds and a bunny, while sitting  on a blanket with a vintage picnic basket next to me. Enjoying myself with a glass and a lot of happy thoughts in my head …. Fantastic!

  • Color: Sunset gold
  • Nose: Sharp touch, pepperish, summerbreeze with hints of flowers growing near the sea. exotic fruit, salad leafs and a presence of wood and ripe cucumber
  • Taste: A bit oily, bubble gum with berry flavor, pepperish, plum, mango, exotic and again the lovely flowers from the sea
  • Finish: Medium warm with woody hints.

Suggestions: Not a drop! Trust me. Fine like it is!

Grade: I give this whisky an 8.5 out of 10
