  1. Nosingbär scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Much better than the first round. I really liked him today. Great sherry style. I like Benromach, hence 90 points. Possibly undeserved because 43% are quite little at that age, and if you also consider the price, you might have to deduct 2-3 points. But still 90 from me just judging today's experience.
    • Nose
      Solid and old. Fresh oranges and bitter orange peel, leather, dates, raisins, butterscotch. Hardly anything to feel from the smoke, this slightly tingling note could already be from the barrel. Yes, that includes candied fruit and liquorice. Creamy chocolate. Plums. Cinammon. Fruity sweet. Splendid. I like this dry, tart sherry note in the background, which completes the sweetness, which is quite present. Dark, spicy forest honey. A little flower nectar.
    • Taste
      sweet, tart, spicy, slightly sour. He can do anything. Dates, raisins, salted caramel, candied oranges. Fine leather, if that makes sense. plum cake. cherries. Various tart-sour berries. Chocolate. Very complex and powerful for 43%.
    • Finish
      Candied fruits slowly fade away. Wonderful cask spice with raisins, a little liquorice, chocolate and leather. Maybe some berries, currant.

  2. TKoolhaas scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Did something go wrong? The whisky is very sulfur driven.
    Very sweet, not very complex. Especially considering the age.
    The 43% also feels very flimsy. Quality not the best in my opinion. Price quality even less good.
