  2. Gaija scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    [Quick notes] Very nice one, fair price upon release. Somehow, it feels a bit stronger than 48%. Old school profile that doesn't aim at sexiness. 89/90
    • Nose
      89 89
      Fresh with a bit of mud, clay, clotted cream and mango.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very typically Benromach with a very nice forestian profile, some creamy venison sauce, lightly mushroomy.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Very long finish on dead leaves among other forestian tones, typical again.

    I like whisky like this, 48% is perfect drinking strength for me and this is uncomplicated profile wise but ticks all the boxes on release this was a fair price.
    • Nose
      Pineapple mixed with mango, wafer, hint of vanilla, dark apricot, persimmon fruit, dried candle wax.
    • Taste
      Full on the palate with some nice caramel, nutty notes mixed in with orange and fruit cake. There are faint hints of menthol but overall it is quite sweet
    • Finish
      Good medium length, sweet and full bodied.

  10. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Sample from Tom03
    • Nose
      Wax, fruity and vanilla. Some cranberries and gooseberries.

      Waxy like the current Imperials.
    • Taste
      Wax, fruity and candy - green Haribo bears.
    • Finish
      Cotton candy and some yellow fruits.
