Benromach 10 year old. 43%

Herbal grassy notes jostling with subtle sherry on the nose. It all comes together rather nicely in the mouth: lighter flavours balanced by understated sherry and soft spiciness. Long, warm and satisfying finish.

Seems to lack the tantalising smokiness of the Benromach 'Traditional', but otherwise it's strikingly complete and complex considering its age. Very good.

Seemed to get smokiness coming through fairly strongly tonight, particularly on the nose. Hey ho.
