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. (Mar 2013)
Benromach 10 Years Old is a multi-award winning Single Malt Scotch Whisky hand-crafted at Speyside’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.
|Our distillery – Speyside’s smallest - is located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres, in north-east Scotland. Just two experienced distillers passionately hand-craft Benromach using the finest Scottish barley and the purest spring water from the nearby Romach Hills. They personally ensure that only the highest quality spirit is filled into sturdy oak casks before being left to mature at Benromach for many years. Only when it has matured to our highest quality standards do we bottle it and proudly label it – Benromach Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
We adopt a very simple approach to creating our Single Malts - each part of the art of whisky making impacts on the final product. Like a jigsaw, each part of the whisky making process contributes to the final quality product.
Benromach Distillery is owned a managed by Gordon & MacPhail - a family business for over 100 years.
