Benromach 10 Year Old (2014 Release)
This Benromach 10 Year Old, which was rebranded in 2014, is a dram that arrived on the scene to much acclaim and award, with many bloggers, reviewers and commentators giving it very high marks for a very reasonably priced dram.
I can totally see why, a complex and tasty dram at a reasonable price? Yes please, lots of gentle campfire smoke and vanilla and natural sweetness, this dram is a cracking dram and when value for money is taken into account, a real no brainer.
Thanks to Benromach for the official sample
A gentle whiff of smoke appears first, it's quite woody and vegetal in nature, like a smouldering campire using bracken, sweet chalkiness underlies that with smoky manuka honey and fresh vanilla coming through also, hints of fruit and flora hide in the background.
That campfire smoke is there again with a sweet edge of caramelised honey roast vegetables, sweet potato and parsnips, with a woody sweet edge, fresh vanilla and honey wrap around your taste buds also.
Sweet, chalky, fresh vanilla, yum
