Whisky Reviews for BenRiach Arumaticus Fumosus

- The smoke gives the sweet Rumeinfluss good contra. Pretty sweet in the mouth, but not over it yet.
slightly ashy smoke, vanilla, molasses, sweet and sticky, sour, Raffaello, so more creamy and also the slightly roasted of the waffle shell, the sticks a really everything in the nose, after the first sip I have smoldering coal with sweet , almost like a sweet fruit infusion in the sauna
oily, full-bodied, very sweet, fruity, light acid again, then the smoke comes as a bitter counterpart, roasted notes, sticky-sweet, grapefruit on the palate, tingling, I like quite well
the smoke has largely disappeared, still sweet, yellow overripe fruits, galia melon, some wood on the palate
- In general, not bad. I like the 17 year old much better .....
Smoky and fruit possibly banana
Smoke, fruit note and vanilla
Smoke, sweet, not very long
- I was expecting more - mainly rum, so disappointment for me, though, of course, there is no breakthrough ...
Fine peat combined with dried fruit and probably the advertised banana could be found there, heavy floral tones
In taste slightly peat-rounded in combination with soft pepper spice, vanilla, again dried fruit - dates, figs, toasted toast, caramel
In the reverberation of peat, woody, caramel and a little spice on the tip of the tongue - it is quite long but not very intense, rather rounded and cultivated
- A whisky, nice and full on the nose, which is being 'killed by the taste.
Very sweet on the nose, like its not even a whisky - very intense rum, pralines, rum essence. A decent aroma.
The taste is not as sweet as nose, rather woody, drier - sweetness is present only with very low intensity. This is a step aside compared to nose and what I expected. Little disappointing.
In line with taste, medium intensity and longevity.
Peat smoke, oily, bananas, heather, dark sugar
Peat smoke, spicy, dry, coffee, spicy (ginger, eucalyptus)
Medium long, smoky, spicy, dry
