- ABV 43%
A rare thirty year old whisky from Speyside's smallest distillery, matured in first and refill sherry casks. This was one of the highlights from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2013. Review below.
Tasting note: Copper in colour and slightly dull in appearance. The nose has depth and plenty to offer but remains relatively tight. It offers dilute honey, hints of vanilla and traces of old cedar wood and cigar box. The palate too is understated with dilute honey and vanillin oak expressed in a lovely off dry fashion. Some bursts of dried fruit emerge amongst the lively spices before concluding quite dry, biscuity and prolonged.
Tasted on the same day as the Balvenie 30 Year Old, the Benromach comes across as astonishingly youthful when compared. Indeed it would be hard to pick as a grandfather malt in a blind line up. 43% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... Benromach 30 year old db. n24 spiced sultana, walnuts and polished bookcases; t24 no malt has the right to be anything near so silky. The sugars are a cunning mix of molasses and muscovado; the honey is thinned manuka. Still the barley gets through, though the vanilla is right behind; f24 drier, but never fully dries and has enough spotted dog in reserve to make for a moist, lightly spiced finish. And finally a thin strata of sweet, Venezualan cocoa; b24 you will struggle to find a 30-year-old with less wrinkles than this. Magnificent: one of the outstanding malts of the year. 43% 95.5 points
