Whisky Reviews for Benromach 2008 - Batch 1

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.64 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The only reason I rate the Benromach 100 Proof just a tad higher, is because of the more present sulphur note in the Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008.
    • Nose
      Rather a bit fresher than the 100 Proof, with notes of pear skin and ripe apple parts. However, the signature sweet, smoky barbecue aromas are certainly there, accompanied by cherry syrup, and whiffs of dried oregano. Finally also a bit of tobacco and caramel.
    • Taste
      Undeniably a bit of sulphur (slightly more present than with the 100 Proof), but also black pepper and red fruits, followed by earthy, smoky peat. Somewhat salty, and ripe banana and dark chocolate make an appearance as well.
    • Finish
      Lingering spiciness and sweet barbecue smoke. Long.

  2. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Typical profile Benromach, very dry sherry with muscat grapes, toffee and young leather. A light peat to spice up, a hint of vanilla. On the palate, fruits and flowers, you barely smell alcohol. Final violent and long. Thick caramel.
