Proof66 Notes

Benromach 10yr is an expression representing the distillery's rebirth in 1999 as a new operation under the ownership of Gordon & McPhail. It is blended with spring water from the Romach Hills and aged in both bourbon and sherry casks (in a 80% to 20% ratio).

Benromach Distillery was founded in 1898 and calls itself the smallest working distillery in Speyside. It was dormant in the latter part of the 20th century to be purchased by Gordon & McPhail in 1993. They operate with a mere two employees. They hand-select the barley and purchase in small lots of 30 tons. In 1999, they began using exclusively organically grown barley.

It takes more than a few drams to recognize the great complexity of this lightly peated Speysider. The nose has numerous layers. Predominant features are delicate bonfire smoke, polished wood and creamy caramel sweetness with apricots, green apples and raisins. Flavorwise, Benromach 10 arrives strong and spicy, turning slightly dry and mineral with a blanket of leafy smokiness. Well-balanced oak cask influence contributes to a nutty, savory and quite long finish, leaving behind mild bitterness and peat smoke. It's a highly recommended, sophisticated Single Malt.
