30 Years Old Tasting Notes This rich, elegant old Benromach expression will be a highly prized addition to your own collection. With a complex style it makes a deeply enjoyable fireside dram. Pour a glass and notice the bright gold colour — very apt for a whisky that has won so many awards. First enjoy the AROMA WITHOUT WATER… initial rum and raisin notes, with a delicate vanilla edge, give way to smooth peach and nectarine fruit flavours mingling beautifully with toasted malt. Now take a good sip, swirl it around your mouth and savour the TASTE WITHOUT WATER. There are hints of rich sherried Christmas cake with a touch of marzipan, and mixed spices. It’s deliciously smooth and creamy with mouth warming qualities. Now add a little water and take a few inhalations to enjoy the AROMA WITH WATER. Through the subtle notes of ripe green apples, a delicate touch of charred oak smoke comes to the fore and malty notes emerge, too. Now the moment you’ve been waiting for: the TASTE WITH WATER. There’s a wonderful initial burst of Sherry sweetness with a hint of peat smoke and black pepper, giving a long, smooth and warming finish. This whisky was awarded the Best Single Malt Scotch Whisky 28-34 Years (Multiple Casks), scoring 95.5 points out of 100 in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2012.
