Benromach 10 Year (Speyside Single Malt Scottish Whisky: 10 Year: 43% ABV)

Visual: Light shining bronze.

Viscosity: Very fast multiple streaks form in an instant.

Nose: Warming sugared barley and oak. Light dusty planed wood. Slight smoke character when water is added.

Body: Light glucose, rounded and warm. Treacle, marzipan and liquorice . Again slight smoked elements with water. Nice dollop of sweetness.

Finish: Some light wood. liquorice only just comes through. Quite fresh and light. Bitter touch and burnt touches with water.

Conclusion: An easy going sipping whisky. A nice bit of extra smoke with water which adds to a decent main character, though a far from overpowering one.

It’s very good for session drinking and makes progress on the already impressive Traditional Benromach. Light sweet and barley influenced.

Not a hardcore whisky, but I will complement it having done itself proud with this presentation.
