Whisky reviews for Benromach 2002

4 users have left 4 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 82.53 points.

  1. Jack McClane scored this whisky 72 points Connoisseur

    Unfortunately a disastrous malt. Yes, I know this is price entry. But it's just dry, woody and bland. Far too little wine influence.

    I don't understand how something like that can be bottled and sold.

    The Benromach 10 and also the 15 are really great benchmarks which maybe 2-3% would have been good - but this malt does not fit into the series in my eyes.

  3. Igor scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Here's a shining example of a striking compatibility of Tuscan wine impacted on Scotch. Very successful attempt with Sassicaia cask no doubt, and good value for money by the way. Unexpectedly fine single malt it must be admitted. Superb really, just superb!
    • Nose
      This is oozing intimacy and tenderness. Hints of cosmetics (cream rouge/skin cream), delicate perfume, lemongrass oil, custard?, subtly sweet vanilla profile. Engaging, exciting, highly captivating feminine scent.
    • Taste
      Red currant, cornflour?, marshmallow, peach jelly?, liquorice, hot pepper/paprika, almonds, cinnamon, custard powder, chocolate bar.
    • Finish
      Long enough. Warm and nippy. Minerality, some citrus, sulphury nip, iodine, gingery, white pepper, espresso macchiato with a small amount of milk.
