Whisky Reviews for Benromach 2002
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.52 points
- Benromach Peat Smoke 2004 - 2013, Original Bottling, 46% alc.
Expansion: Ex-Bourbon barrels
Region: Speyside, Scotland
Nose: vanilla and peat smoke, lightly charred grilled meats, bratwurst, charcoal. Behind it green / yellow bananas and apricot, maybe peach, unripe strawberries, forest honey. The smoke covers these flavors but some time, hand warmth helps here.
Palate: Smoke and pepper, chestnuts and nuts, light fruit notes (goes in the direction of juice oranges). Somehow pipe tobacco.
Finish: Very long and smoky, peppery and spicy. Remains on the tongue for a long time. This is where the tobacco also plays.
Conclusion: A very nice, with 54 ppm tormented Speyside single malt, which can easily be compared with Islay whiskys.
