This is a beautiful whisky, crystal clean with a nice interplay between the virgin oak and the fruity and yeasty distillate. Young, but not too young, playful and with a very good mouthfeel for its 43%, this is a perfect daily dram. Don't let yourself be put off by the rather mediocre WB rating. Coming from the sturdy and full-bodied 10yo many might have wrong expectations, as this whisky is more delicate. At >40€ it might be a bit overpriced, but I bought two bottles on sale for less than 30€ each recently, instantly opened one and did not regret it. I'll be looking out for organic Benromachs to come!
Intense, beautifully bright and fruity, with lemon sherbet, orange blossoms, peaches and pickled ginger, with some light caramel sauce drizzled over it. Not much wood influence for a virgin oak matured malt (yes, there's a little bit of oaky spiciness in the background), but after all it's only 7 years old. In my opinion this is exactly the right age for that kind of malt. For the nose as well as for all the other aspects of the experience you could say that it's not very complex - but it is delightfully clean, well made and satisfying.
Strong, malty and spicy attack (now the wood comes forward a bit, but not in a disturbing manner), than the malt opens up to more caramel and vanilla, peach cobbler, savory orange sauce with ginger, a hint of smoke and a very slight dustiness which may lead to the impression of a traditionally made scotch whisky (which is both true and not true as it's organic and matured in virgin oak). But all the elements for a classic Speyside experience are there and make up for a very compelling palate. Just like with their 10yo, this Benromach does not make you miss a higher alcohol volume, as its mouthfeel is quite perfect for the strength.
Medium long, slightly vegetal now (on sweet peppers), with malt and honey coming back in waves. Very good and quite impressive for the young age.
