Review #74 | /r/Scotch Review #27 – Benromach 10
The Schtick: This is Benromach’s entry to their age stated line of products.
ABV: 43% ABV
Age: 10 Years
Mashbill: Single Malt (Barley)
Nose: Smokey, fruity and sweet. Mild pear and apple with a healthy smokey tone.
Taste: It’s a little smokey, there’s some mild salty/ salted caramel notes. Mild fruitiness as well. All in all, this dram just tastes….mild. There’s some yummy dark chocolate at the end though. It’s not bad, but it doesn’t have an amazing amount of character.
Finish: It’s short – medium. The finish is smokey and satisfying and quite enjoyable, despite anything notable taste wise.
Overall: I’m less impressed with this dram than many other mildly smokey drams I’ve had. It’s not bad, but it’s also not that noteworthy. A good middle of the road glass if something mild and a little smokey is what you’re after.
