BenRiach The Smoky Ten 10 Year Old Review

10th December 2020
Review of BenRiach The Smoky Ten 10 Year Old.

BenRiach The Smoky Ten 10 Year OldBenRiach The Smoky Ten 10 year old is the new entry level peated single malt in the recently revamped BenRiach core range.

It is the result of peated BenRiach spirit having been matured for 10 years in a combination of three types of cask - bourbon barrels, toasted virgin oak and Jamaican rum casks.

The BenRiach Smoky Ten is bottled at 46% ABV and has a RRP of 42

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Enticing vanilla fudge and honey infused with delicious sweet peat smoke, a little touch of peach and pear adds a little fruitiness, a little oak spice in the background.

Taste: The deliciously sweet Benriach peat leads followed by some lovely sweet coconut, honey and sweet pepper. A slight touch of almond oil lurking in the background and some late oak spice.

Finish: Long with sweet peat, pepper, a touch of lemon zest, a little ginger and oak spice.

Comment: I have always liked the peated Benriach's and this is no exception, a quality peated dram. If I had to choose between the the peated and unpeated Benriach 10 and 12 year olds in the new line-up this would be my choice and again another whisky which I can I highly recommend it and if you are looking for a last minute Christmas gift for a whisky loving friend or family member that wont bust the bank I am sure they would thank you for this if they enjoy a peated dram.

SMW Whisky Score 89/100
