Whisky Reviews for Benromach 2000

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.54 points

  1. vriesdich scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    One of the best Port cask whiskies I`ve tasted. Has probably to do with the smokey tang Benromach has. Also it`s not really a finish, considering it has been in the Port casks for 8 years (out of the 12).

  3. Sonett scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Finish
      Medium long with Sweetness and fading soft spices

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A warming character with a good balance. I get toffee, bramble, chocolate brownies, orange, dark cherry, plum and even a whiff of peat smoke. A very enjoyable whisky. Had this one been bottled at cask strength, then it probably would have deserved a 90-score.
    The presentation deserves a really low score though. Seriously, that purple tube is as ugly as it gets and even challenges those of the Old Pulteneys, but in the end it`s the quality of the whisky that really matters and that`s not something to complain about. 

    I adjusted the score for the presentation from 55 to 82 in order not to drag the weighted rate down too much.
