    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.
    • Nose
      Apricots, applesauce, almonds, marzipan, ripe bananas, salt, greasy seasoning, restrained smoke, brown cane sugar,
    • Taste
      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
    • Finish
      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.
