      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.

      One of the most unpleasant of my drams. In my personal opinion it is very flat in taste, very bitter, the smoke is noticeable only with first sip. Sorry for all Benromach fans but this is along with Glenmorangie 10 my worst dram of whisky I had.

      I'm pretty impressed. Wonderful complex between oakiness, orange and peat. It is beyond my expectation. Great one with smoke and orange. Well balanced one.
