- An interesting, intense, well-made Speyside malt; packed in a valent, copper-colored tin box!
spicy note, sweetness, sherry, subtle smoky note;
strong alcoholic onset, noticeable wood note, oak, sherry aromas, fine smoke;
medium long strong finish; Sweetness, spice and smoke fade away;
- Great combination of vanilla, sherry, fruit and light sooty peat smoke. Very nicely done.
- A pleasant, light spacer with unexpected smoky impregnations, on the whole quite harmoniously fitting into the overall picture, quite dense and saturated for its fortress.
Warm, dry, sun-heated board, wood dust, salted fish, light smoke, lemon, flower tones, caramel.
Bitter, cool, oak-peppery, smoky notes, coal, lemon, fruit candied fruits.
Soft, light smoke, lemon, weak oak bitterness, lemon peel, little warming ginger, herbal sour.
- This Benromach would have done 46% really well, then he could have become one of my absolute favorites. Thus, a slight aura obscures the for a ten-year impressively complex flavor palette. But that is lamentation on a very high level - the Benromach is definitely a very balanced, full-bodied and exciting whisky that needs some time and with which you can then go on a long journey of discovery.
Apricots, applesauce, almonds, marzipan, ripe bananas, salt, greasy seasoning, restrained smoke, brown cane sugar,
43% are not very much, but still a herbaceous spicy onset, light smoke, astringent dryness, fruity creamy sweetness, tart spices such as cardamom, nutmeg, slight ginger sharpness
Then you notice the low alcohol content more clearly, it gets watery and quickly slips from the palate, a little tart spiciness stays a little longer.
