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)
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.
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.
