  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 great 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 portion of oxygen in the bottle for a good time.

    A pleasant, fruity whisky with a good price-pleasure ratio
    • Nose
      85 85
      Fresh, sweet berry fruits. Dusty paper. A little herbal smoke, freshly cut grass and green tea, matcha. Reminiscent of Littlemill.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Very oily and heavy. Sweet and very spicy. Light herbal aromas, bitterness gradually becoming stronger, coffee with milk. Overall smooth but also one-dimensional.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Surprisingly long and beautifully oily. Apple peel, freshly cut grass, herbaceous spice, sour bitter notes.
