Benromach 10 Year
Peated Single Malt
Benromach // Speyside, Scotland
Benromach prides itself for producing "traditional" Speyside Scotch with a touch of peat. Historically, pre-1960s, the region was known for smokier styles but since then, unpeated whiskies have mostly prevailed. The spring water used in the whiskey comes from the Romach Hills. The 10 Year Old is aged in 80% ex-bourbon casks and 20% first fill Oloroso sherry.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"Although this Scotch is peated like Islays, the smoke tastes more like campfire BBQ than rubber tires. The sweet flavors (vanilla, golden fruits, caramel) and the smoke mingle well, allowing some of the nuttiness from the sherry to waft through without being overpowering. This is one of those whiskies that stimulates the palate and actually makes one hungry for food. Would be an insanely delicious pairing with pastrami or smokey hams."
