“A smart packaging job for this distillery-bottled expression of Benromach 10yo, which has been a big hit since its introduction in late 2009. Well done to G&M for making the standard release strength 43%. Tasting Notes:
NOSE: Toffee and butterscotch with hints of liquorice and green apple.
PALATE: The liquorice and green apple continue from the nose, joined by a maltiness, smoke and spicy cardamom and white pepper.
FINISH: Warming, with the fruit and spice slowly dissipating to leave a delightful malty smokiness.
COMMENT: Benromach have succeeded in their aim of going back to the classic Speyside style of the 1960s, and the whisky has a very traditional feel about it.”
