5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.58 points

  1. DocF scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Color: yellow gold.

    I nibbled it this afternoon immediately after being released from the packing station, after a month without high-proof alcohol it was really bitter, after a non-alcoholic beer and the 2cl not very young Glenlivets in advance, that happened. Admittedly not my preferred style of whisky, you could have refilled, but apparently "first fill only" seems to be wanted by the customer (where did I read again that Benromach does not fill in refill barrels?). Enough tasty, good whisky, if a bit more interchangeable than the 10 year old OA. Incidentally, I rarely had elder / privet flowers as intense as in this whisky. 88 points.
    • Nose
      First of all great, smells very much like a barrel, lots of vanilla, some oatmeal, privet flower, ripe pears. With water: more privet flowers, linden honey, lightly charred wood. Shoe polish. Sweet bun, elderflower jelly. With more air: milk coffee.
    • Taste
      With water: vanilla, fully ripe pears, some kiwi, blackberries, privet flower, some candle soot removed. Maybe dill, I don't find typical Mustard grain notes. With chewing sooty, resinous. Wet earth.
    • Finish
      Medium length. First floral, lots of privet flowers, some block malt, later blackberries burned in the sun, black bread, some old coffee.

  3. g00se did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Beautiful EX-BC malt with coconut, pineapple and leather. Just the typical Benromach? Unfortunately I miss smoke. Can understand what the Doc means interchangeable.
    Still good. More detailed notes will follow.
