  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Comes in surprisingly fresh and natural. Barley, almond, vanilla sugar, apple, hay, citrus, white chocolate and peat. In the long run also whipped cream. A tad of saltiness as well, which increases when adding water. Dangerously easy to drink for its ABV.
    The packaging must be the most ugly one that I`ve seen the last couple of years though. But in the end it's the taste that matters, and that's more than satisfying.

  4. nallacam scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I am quite positive, a simple single malt who knows how to convince with his clear lines - Sommer Dram
    • Nose
      Classic bourbon sweetness, lemon, hay, malt, fresh grain, fresh
    • Taste
      strong onset, the alcohol nicely prickles on the tongue, but not unpleasant, not lively, vanilla, lemon - with the addition of water very round, almost tasty ...
    • Finish
      dry and long-lasting finish, not complex but straightforward and honest

    Benromach 2002/2012 OB Cask Strength 70cl 60.3% first fill bourbon barrel JIS This is perfect for the first cup but it is not good with such a cute impression Benromach 2002! Well, I felt the sense of stability of my style, but I did not expect it to be so unexpected ... Color: As you pour it, you will notice a yellow syrup about the ceremonial ice coffee of a well-established coffee shop in La Fila Such a mysterious shade feels the feeling of oily honey Nose: faint honey! This is the best stuff! However! Where is ~! Ironness that the nose is torn turns down modern Caol Ila, Longrow which is also bad at all ... Attack: jiwiwa kuru, peaty & smokey beauty The ashiness of beauty really is Benromach? What? What? Well, I guess it is ... Is this what Benromach is supposed to be? Body: Steel like a lie, a door of iron that seems to be sharp Taste: It is perfect for potato salad with seaweed with salmon in it! Unexpected dry spot that did not feel long after! So, since when was Benromach your biggest finger? It is as bitter as the chilli sauce is erupting.I believe even if it is told that it is juicy side Clynelish which is as flavorful as it works. Finish: Juwa and Orange, it is very powerful.The faintly silky rare cheesecake is typical, it is mixed with the spoon's metality and the unique sum of ekimi of salmon chopsticks, falling over! It will fade away! Once again, it became a rare cup that made me feel the power of the distillery in Benromach.But after all, Benromach is dying again and again! https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyhars7furh2p

    • Nose
      Very fresh with a hint of smoke. Vanilla, barley, citrus and pineapple make for a lovely smell.
    • Taste
      Black pepper, a bit of saltiness and again that freshness, now with some more green fruits.
    • Finish
      Nice peppery finish with some zest. Slowly fades away.
