  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Based on my experience with a previous Benromach Sassicaia, I would have expected something completely different (fresher, lighter, more fruity), but this one is also good, both for the age and for 40 € a great whisky.
    • Nose
      unexpectedly heavy, sweet, spicy, then some smoke and nut ... and with a very deep inhalation a slight medicinal freshness, camillan, Pulmotindampf
    • Taste
      sweet, earthy, spicy, slightly spicy, and again this bitter-kräutrige Kamillan note (which I think is not bad)
    • Finish
      warm, sweet, slightly bitter smoke (and a little camillan ;-))

  3. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A very nice Daily Dram, the important components are for me, some smoke, some fruit and saliva sweetie
    • Nose
      There is some smoke, also the first color impression I see confirmed, a lot of fruit, goes in the direction of sherry, nutty and peppery, also fresh menthol, with a lot of imagination a little chocolate
    • Taste
      creamy, light sulfur, sherry, very light smoke, some sweetness, a touch of honey, also something peppery again, but does not have much booze, it lacks some intensity
    • Finish
      some fruit, the honey becomes clearer, lighter smoke, pleasant but unspectacular

  4. granella2003 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Intense, smoky aromas and sweet notes of toffee and marshmallos which in turn are followed by soft hints of red berries. A spicy undertone gives the whisky a solid base that holds together at all.
    • Taste
      On the palate opens a slightly salty taste of smoke associated with hints of pepper and sweet cherries. Hints of malt and a touch of honey along with earthy peat come up in the middle range.
    • Finish
      A fairly full and rich whisky that ends in a sweet and slightly dry finish of toffee, peat and fruit.
