5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.50 points

  1. abcmeuric did not rate this whisky Member Junior

    First nose is quite airy (menthol and light smoke) with a touch of honey and almond paste. The bourbon influence is noticeable. Even with some time it can't hide its young age.

    Suprisingly peaty in mouth, salt and smoke first. Burnt wood and spices then. The sweeter notes are still there but even more distant.

    Finish follows the same trail, short and warm. A thin note of smoke lingers on.

    The nose is the nicest part, then it can't keep up the pace. Not impressed, especially regarding the price. 6/10

    ● The dress.
    Gold straw, regular drops, fine and slow.

    ● The nose.
    Fine, fresh, medicinal, menthol and anise, fresh and fine peat, salty, fine and sweet smoke, earth and fresh vanilla. Some notes of hazelnut, old wood and blond tobacco.

    ● The mouth.
    Sweet, opulent, peat is earthy and airy, smoke tenderly. Anise, tender licorice, blond tobacco and burnt new wood. Some dried fruits and lemon.

    ● The final.
    Long on smoked peat and licorice, menthol.

    A good big piece here, I love Benromach, here I can only admire his power and his balance.

    If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 88.

    Aged in a first-fill bourbon cask, this version gives the sensation of being more peaty than its phenol content (12 ppm) would suggest. In this, she perfectly embodies the Benromach style. Of course, with aeration, notes of jam, freshly cut grass, various honeys, some citrus fruits or even various aromatic plants compete with intensity and remind us, if it were needed, that this distillery is well located in the Speyside area, more exactly near the city of Forres in Morayshire.
    Profile: complex, the first nose is nobly peated before becoming jammy, herbaceous and minty. After aeration, medicinal notes appear. The peat also serves as a spine to the mouth that extends on citrus fruits and on medicinal and spicy notes. The finish is milky (coconut) and vegetable (artichoke).
