Tasting notes for the Benromach 10 Years Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Pour yourself a dram of Benromach – not too wee and not too big. Swirl the golden liquid around your glass and notice the AROMA WITHOUT WATER. In other words, take a sniff. Indeed, indulging in several little inhalations is the best way to pick up all the different notes… rich sherry with fruit & nut chocolate, delicate spice, green apples, malty biscuit and a touch of light peat smoke. Now sip your dram, roll the whisky around your mouth and enjoy the TASTE WITHOUT WATER… juicy raspberries and brambles, sherry, creamy malt and a light peat. Next, take in the AROMA WITH WATER… it’s a wee bit nutty with a touch of charred oak and malt, and there’s also some fancy pineapple and kiwi. Add a drop or two of water to release the full TASTE WITH WATER. Savour the succulent mouth coating and taste the toasted malt, delicate peat smoke and lingering sweet sherry… our gorgeous classic Benromach Speyside style of single malt whisky.
Tasting notes for the Benromach 100º Proof Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Same as the 10 Year Old but bottled at 100% Proof vs. 40%.
Nose: Boom, there’s the sherry nose I’d been expecting, hints of vanilla, menthol undertone – really interesting.
Palate: Fresh berries, black pepper, milk chocolate, citrus peel all wrapped in a delicate smokiness.
Finish: Lingers, bonfires and smokiness.
Overall: Really enjoyable, much more impressed with the power on this vs. the ‘standard’ 10 Year Old.
Tasting notes for the Benromach 15 Year Old Single Malt
Pour yourself a dram of Benromach 15 Years Old. Lift it to the light and note the especially golden amber colour, thanks to the long maturation in sherry and bourbon casks. Now swill it around your glass and take a few little inhalations to savour the AROMA WITHOUT WATER… there’s a lot going on… beautifully balanced sherry aromas with vanilla pod, zesty orange and spicy ginger complemented by delicate chamomile and menthol notes. Now sip your dram, roll the whisky around your mouth and enjoy the TASTE WITHOUT WATER… there’s luscious, rich fruit cake with stewed plum, red apple skin and the sharp edge of kiwi fruit. Next, take in the AROMA WITH WATER… the whisky shifts into another gear with subtle hints of cocoa, nutmeg and cinnamon giving way to sweet honey notes and hints of bonfire embers. Add a drop or two of water to release the full TASTE WITH WATER… it’s a very satisfying palate with traces of charred oak complementing sweet tangerine, plum and nectarines… completed by a gorgeous touch of milk chocolate.
As with all Benromach whiskies, these whiskies are hand-crafted by just four distillers using the finest natural ingredients at the Forres distillery.
