Whisky Musings #6 – Benromach 10

In this review we discuss Benromach 10, a very reasonably priced entry level scotch from the Speyside region.

 

Benromach 10 (Speyside) – 43% ABV – $59.15 (LCBO)

Colour: Chestnut

Nose: Earthy: Toasted almonds, tobacco, fresh leather.  Hints of raisin, cinnamon spice and smoke.  

Palate: Earthy notes still pervade.  Almonds and shoe leather on the approach, with more fruit notes on the development.  Raisins, dried red fruits and honeyed orange rind.  

Finish:  Medium length.  The savory leather notes linger pleasantly with that light touch of smoke finally coming through, and a hint of mint on the end.

Score: 87/100

 

I think Benromach has done a fantastic job with this entry-level scotch, and I will be keeping my eyes peeled for the 100 proof version to make its way to Ontario.
