  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Whisky Galore (NZ) notes

    Nose: The aroma starts with notes of a fragrant spice cupboard, creamy custard (creme brulee) and freshly baked date scones, building to a delicate thread of tropical fruit and a gentle note of peat-smoked barley. With water added, there is a sweet note of vanilla pods, followed by white chocolate and borage honey.

    Palate: Without any water, this is a big, big dram - weighty with oily and creamy textures, carrying flavours of mixed spice, summer-berry fruit-compote all carried by a whiff of soft peat smoke. With water, the spice and peat flavours mingle and mellow, bringing out a moreish, drying quality from the wood.

    Finish: Long and lingering, the spices remain dominant, with a malty, chocolatey flavor remaining.

  2. dramspotter scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Blind Tasting: Benromach is not one of my go-to distilleries but this first fill Bourbon Cask was quite a revelation. With good wood this distillery is capable of producing some good whisky.
    • Nose
      initially smoky bacon, then smoke with some redcurrant jam
    • Taste
      syrupy in texture; a little thin in fruitiness initially
    • Finish
      medium (at least) - a bit alcohol driven but it retains a mild sweetness before the berries return
