13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.58 points

  1. Dris scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nice rounded Benromach with intense sweet vanilla notes. Other than that not too different from the normal 10yo.

  2. Falnor scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I still think this is an exciting whisky for a good price. There's a lot happening in this dram. I enjoy drinking it and every time it will entertain you.

      Starts with damp grain and old ripe apples. Some sweet woodsmoke that gets bigger. Cinnamon. Give it some time and it will become better with even a bit of melon.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Less grainy and more fruit on the palate. With the lemons it starts boring, but thanks to the dark grapes, pear, herbs like ginger and a nice strawberry we've got a winner! Also some smoke again.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Nice dynamic whisky with a medium finish.

  3. ctu scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not the wine finish is the strength, but it's a pleasant balance despite the young age.
    • Nose
      Floral. Orange peel, melon, cocoa, pepper, oak and smoke.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, milk caramel, bitter oak, cocoa, peat and vividly acidic wines.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy.

  4. Malthead19 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    - a nice smooth malt
    - tasty and easy to drink
    • Nose
      very pleasant, fruity, soft, apricot, grape, very aromatic, makes you want more
    • Taste
      strong aromatic start, not overloaded but everything is present, oak, light fruit notes, spice (develops more strongly in the back of the palate)
    • Finish
      soft medium-long finish; long dry spicy aftertaste

  8. sanobi scored this whisky 72 points Newbie

    I would have liked a more intense note in smell and taste from the last storage. At the point he disappointed me. Overall, solid wisky but not as special as hoped. can be bought, but for me not worth € 50. 35-40 € are tastefully appropriate. No mandatory purchase. Maybe an 8 + 4 storage would have done him better to better shape the finish. Or choose another grape. But overall, Benronach is always worth a sip. I also buy the next experiment. Limited bottlings simply irritate me.

    --- Blind cost ---
    • Nose
      87 87
      Light, mineral smoke, beautifully spicy, superficial sherry fruit, a hint of sulfur, behind it yellow, sweet fruits, with time the smoke is more and more in the background, the mineral spice remains, vanillin is added. I like it pretty much.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, oily, light tingling, some fruit, spicy, no oak recognizable.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long, somewhat flat, watery sweetness, indefinite fruit. At the back I taste the spicy smoke again.
