Benromach 10 Years Old 100 Proof

WSD February Featured Whisky:  This is a great whisky first and foremost but it is the contrast and step-up from the straight 10 Years Old, which in itself is a fine whisky which I always end up scoring highly in competitions, is fascinating.  It is the same cask make-up but it is so much more complex.  Great stuff. This is a gorgeous classic pre-1960's Speyside character at a higher strength; intense and complex yet beautifully balanced with a light touch of smoke.  This is called 100 Proof because once, all whisky in Scotland were measured this old imperial way.  The tradition actually started with rum when sailors wanted to make sure their rations had not been watered down, so they mixed a little spirit with gunpowder.... if it ignited, it's strength was 'proved'.
