Whisky Reviews for Benromach 2008

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.77 points

  1. Sakew scored this whisky 89 points Newbie

    This is a really "honest" one. No chichi, but shows all aspects you expect from a solid bourbon cask speysider. It invides to explore, but is as well just enjoyable for "easy sipping". Dangerously quaffable. For me this is a good swimmer and wins when brought to 45-50% with some water.

    A young Benromach as a single cask (1st fill bourbon barrel) in barrel strength was served today. With a strong 60.3% vol., The dram is corn-colored and with narrow "legs", just as you would expect from a young whisky.

      After a few minutes in the jar, after lifting the lid, the alcohol first sticks in the nose, but this disappears after a few moments. Then the dram exudes the scent of fresh birch wood, ripe lime, heather honey and a very gentle smoke aroma, as you know it from other Benromachs.
      After reducing to about 50% vol. And again for a few minutes in the glass, sandalwood, lemon sorbet, a little honey and the scent of a dry summer meadow can be found in the glass. The whisky looks fresh and lively.

      On the palate, the dram is undiluted and oily, with a nice sweetness and clear sharpness from alcohol. After adding water, a fine honey note comes into play, as well as fresh herbs and lime zest. Mint gives the dram great freshness and it is a drop that you can enjoy spending an evening with. A character whisky to experiment with.
    • Finish
      85 85
      In the medium to long finish, a delicious floral sweetness remains on the palate, followed by a rather peppery sharpness and mint flavors. There is an invigorating tingle as well as a slight bitter note.
