My apologies, I know I missed my regular Monday post. I was unfortunately feeling under the weather and it turned out to be a pretty busy day at work yesterday. I am making up for up by posting today and I am going to post my second post on my Gordon & MacPhail (G&M) whisky series. The first post on the series was Gordon & MacPhail Series Post 1 of 6: Scapa 10 year-old . You can click on the link to read that post and get more information about G&M. This second post is about their 10 year-old Benromach.
Benromach is a Speyside distillery first established in 1898 and it is now owned by G&M. The 10 year-old Benromach was released under its new package and you’ll be surprise to know that it’s a Speyside whisky with Peat Smoke. Make no mistake, it’s definitely not as potent as the Islay Peat Smoke, but you can definitely taste it.
Nose: sherry, light peat smoke and spices
Palate: light peat smoke, sherry and hints of apple
Finish: light and creamy
Although the smoke is not as intense as the Islay smoke, I say this whisky does a great job at bringing those light smoke notes. So much so, that we ended purchasing a bottle of this whisky before we left. It is tasty and very worth the price. We paid $59.99 for it and were very glad to add to our collection. I do recommend trying if you come across it.
