  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Instead of dominating the spirit, the Château Cissac cask and the Benromach profile work really well together in this iteration. My favourite of the Wood Finish Series so far.
    • Nose
      Classic Benromach peat smoke and sweetness, with a barbecue-esque meatiness, accompanied by blueberries, plums and dark cherries. There's some soft notes of stewed pears in the background. Best of all—no sulphur at all. Excellent!
    • Taste
      A whiff of pepper with lingering smoke and soot, as well as fried bacon and milk chocolate. Not very fruity, yet there's a hint of maraschino cherries here.
    • Finish
      Lingering barbecue smoke, a touch of peat and some charred orange peel.

    A hammer whisky from Benromach! The distillery character comes through well and the red wine finish has produced great aromas. Tip: The whisky can definitely take a good dose of oxygen in the bottle for a long time.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Citrus fruits, light smoke, nice sweetness, vanilla, fresh fruits, spicy, very slightly woody, slightly sweet chocolate, red fruits as light as a feather, spices and darker fruits appear over time
    • Taste
      86 86
      Chocolate, spicy, dark fruits, citrus, oak wood, tart, slightly bitter, subtle smoke, fresh red fruits
    • Finish
      87 87
      Smoky, malty, sweet, spicy, minimally tart, you can guess hints of dry red wine, very long, woody

  4. schengel10 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    For about 8 years, Benromach has created an intense malt with a wine barrel finish!
    Compared to the previous year (WB-ID 101173) this is a bit rougher, not so finely tuned and sometimes slightly alcoholic!
    [Color] = gold;
    • Nose
      fruity (citrus fruits, raspberries), sweet, vinous, here alcohol on the nose; little smoke;
    • Taste
      powerful, lightly burning start, oily, sweet, heavy, red wine (bitter), no smoke (?), spices, really spicy oak;
    • Finish
      medium length, intense, now smoke, spice, oak again;

  6. FuturePerfect scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    I bought this Benromach Wood Finish bottling because I was enthusiastic about the Hermitage. This comes close. I really like this series.
    • Nose
      88 88
      First fill - exBourbon and red wine finish equally strong and fully noticeable. Vanilla and red fruit jelly (currants, raspberries) strongly perfumed next to each other noticeable, but nicely balanced.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The finish comes out. Strong oak, dry red wine. Full.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Pleasantly full oak remains with a slight, but still dark, sweetness.
