Wine Enthusiast 91 points - This copper-hued whiskey offers concentrated caramel, pecan pie and oak aromas. The palate is oaky and drying, not as luscious as the aroma suggests, showing vanilla and spice, plus hints of baked apple and cocoa. Adding water brings out more nutty flavor and a whiff of smoke..Kara Newman, December/2017
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Bursting with ripe fruit flavors reminiscent of mango, dark cherry and tangerine as well as offering deeper notes of vanilla, butterscotch, shortbread, and honeysuckle. In the mouth it is rich with a sherry sweetness balanced by gentle peat smoke and candied tangerine. It barrels into the finish boldly with notes of honey and citrus zest..March/2013
Benromach 10 Years Old is a multi-award winning Single Malt Scotch Whisky hand-crafted at Speysideâ€™s smallest working distillery. Initially matured in a mix of Bourbon and Sherry casks, the whisky is transferred to European oak Oloroso Sherry casks for a final period of maturation. The result is a beautifully balanced dram, displaying a rich Sherry character, summer fruit flavours, malt creaminess and a light peat smoke influence.
