    This needs a bit of water and not one of my favourites but it certainly woke my palate up.
    • Nose
      Fruity and floral with honeycomb and fudge. There is also a slight chemical note also.
    • Taste
      Very hot and spicy with some woody bitterness. It does thankfully settle down with a few curry paste notes and something meaty like braised beef.
    • Finish
      Gets more drying as it goes on but good length.

  5. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A special Benromach from the pre Gordon & Macphail era.
    • Nose
      Floral and earthy notes. Wet grass and hay. Also some fruitiness. A little bit soapy later on. Even some smoke?
    • Taste
      Hot chilli and spicy at first. Then more fruitiness. Lemon and lime. Liquorice. Vanilla and some oak. Oily and coating mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Dry but warming. Bitter-sweet.
