Benromach 10 Years Old. Image courtesy Benromach/Gordon & MacPhail.This is the first Benromach with an age statement since Gordon & MacPhail reopened the distillery in 1998, and it has an aromatic, fruity nose with notes of dried figs and raisins, as well as a spicy base underneath with ginger, cinnamon and vanilla hints. The taste is thick and chewy with cinnamon spice underlying a citrusy sweetness with notes of orange peel, figs, and molasses. The finish is syrupy and lingering with fruity touches and just the barest whiff of smokiness. (Updated July, 2015)
