  1. Kostya scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    very
    good young benromach, even though PX influence is not prominent (a sample)
    • Nose
      (neat) light peat, chocolate
      syrup, apricot jam, lemon oil
      (water) vanilla, figs, sultanas,
      quite complex young nose
    • Taste
      (neat) very fresh, sour citrus,
      gooseberry, grassy, slightly astringent
      (water) lemon juice, pepper,
      vanilla, mixed fruits preserve, black raisins
    • Finish
      lingering
      finish, very nice, sweet and sour

  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Not a trace of the PX finish in the nose or the palate. This young Benromach is more on the fruity side in combination with peat. Quite enjoyable though.
    • Nose
      Unexpected rough notes of leather and smoke. Pine. Nutty maltiness as well. Burnt toast
    • Taste
      Now more fruity and punchy sweetness of apricot and lychees. Orange marmelade intermingled with peat. Followed by pine and menthol. Also aniseed and shortbread.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Little pepper. Ginger. Liquorice. Spearmint.

  3. HunterRomario scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet chocolate, wood, with a slightly peat-like breeze and deeper tones of fruit. (85 b)
    • Taste
      Spicy spicy, spice on tongue, dry sherry, ripe plums, cinnamon. A long and distinctive flavor in sherry style. (86 b)

  4. granella2003 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The nose a bowl of overripe fruit, resinous, with oak and peat competing to prevail. On the palate, melon and even a pleasant alternation between oak and peat.
