Benromach 10 Year Old
A really interesting dram that I tried recently at Livingston Whisky Club and that really shocked me with the American Cream Soda notes.
A really interesting 10 Year old dram from the Benromach distillery which is owned by Gordon & MacPhail, this is a mix of mainly bourbon casks and sherry casks which at 9 years old have all been moved to sherry casks for a final years finishing.
There's still a hint of smoke here, especially on the palate, which harks back to the way Speyside malts used to be.
A realy distinctive note of bicarbonate of soda with american cream soda and a splash of mixed fruit salad, grapes, cherries, apples and pears with a gentle lick of wood burning smoke
Smoky, more of a wood burner type smoke, with american cream soda
smoky malt loaf and a touch of dry white wine
