  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fine and fresh, with small notes of soot, it evokes Springbank but with more mineral accents. Chips of wood, a certain youth shows through with some yeast notes.
      With water, a little vanilla and wood.
    • Taste
      Fine and powerful, quite spicy.
      The water takes his side a little sharp.
    • Finish
      Biting with spices, but with a certain sweetness.
      With water, more clean, malty and mineral.

      Enthusiasm 3/5

    Delicious. I like it. I hope there are a few more of the barrels that are already pleasant to drink, I imagine that will turn into a great whisky in a few years
    • Nose
      Malt, fresh, eucalyptus, old workshop, freshly sawn wood, far away a campfire
    • Taste
      Soft, tingling, citrus, mint, slightly smoky, shoe polish, earth
    • Finish
      Milk chocolate, spice, light smoke, a hint of vanilla, shoe polish, dry

    not the best Benromach, but still delicious. The smoke gives the postive nuance, otherwise relatively easy knitted. I really like the fruit here, though.
    • Nose
      very sweet, pear, fruity, vanilla, but also a hint of smoke, as it is typical for Benromach. The nose is not complex, but in sum somehow interesting and yet pleasing.
    • Taste
      warm, fruity, sweet, light smoke, a lot of fruit compote and relatively sugary. With water a little more peat, wet stone, less sweetness.
    • Finish
      sweet, light smoke, fruit, slightly mineral.

    - a classically really good bourbon barrel storage
    - definitely prefer to enjoy without water
    - with 45 € still just ok. O.
    • Nose
      Buttery, sweet, honey, vanilla, fudge, alcohol very well integrated
    • Taste
      without W .: powerful start, even more powerful development in the mouth, creamy, caramel, followed by strong, powerful spiciness and oak, with 50% still easy to drink;

      with W .: a smoky touch is now much more noticeable than without adding water, doesn't really convince me with water, is better without water!
    • Finish
      powerful long finish;
      long astringent aftertaste

    You can smell a tiny bit of peatyness but also some mineral notes a bit like water from the tap or wet grass. After letting it sit in a glass for 10 minutes, and adding some water it starts to smell like a dry hay. The smell is sweet but not very strong at all. Sweet and salty with a medium length finish. Not oily, the alcohol bites you in the tongue. It's an interesting whisky which you have to get back to after some time in order to fully understand it.

    Without knowing the price I would rate that whisky higher.
