    Wouldn't buy again 
    • Taste
      Pleasent sweet easy drinking. Bit thin. 

      Nice 10ppm peating level. Uses virgin American oak casks. 

  3. Rowald Sweet Empire scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nowadays this is a hard to get malt. In comparison to the non "special edition" organics this is much smokier/peatier. Even compared to the 10y. The virgin wood gives this one some banana/toffee/licorice/vanilla. It doesn't taste as young as it (probably) is. I hope Benromach will do more batches of this in the future.

  4. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    On the whole, Benromach is not my style at all, this bio-resin-tone says nothing to me.
    • Nose
      Oak, some malt with vanilla, banana, cream, coffee, in between also berries
    • Taste
      Pepper and toffee, bananas with honey, oak bark, toasted notes and some chocolate, tree resin
    • Finish
      Peppery dry, malt, oak, creamy, medium-long

  7. Monsieur Dram scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Let's say right now, this Benromach is a good whisky. But, we can only be disappointed by the way things are going. A very interesting nose, but an unbalanced mouth, with invasive spices. Pity !
    • Nose
      A crispy nose of cereals! Sweet notes, pastries, with vanilla, crème fraiche, honey. It's sweet, but not sickening. A little peat looms in the background, with more earthy notes, but also fresher, including liquorice, mint. It's very seductive. Notes of musk, that we do not find so often in the whisky. And then, it's pretty spicy. Cinnamon, pepper, cumin, fenugreek. With the opening, spices and cereals take over.
    • Taste
      Well, right now, it's less dreaming than the nose, unfortunately. The fine peat, which lines the background is interesting. Spices take up a lot of space, a bit too much, unbalancing this attractive malt at first. The spices are very marked: fenugreek, cumin, pepper, clove, ginger. And then, a side a little dry, on cereals and wood.
    • Finish
      quite intense, lots of spices, vanilla, and then this clove, imposing ...

  10. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: some peat at first. some liquorish

    Initial taste: sweet oakiness, and some peat

    Body: medium 

    Finish: medium-long and a bit dry.

    price: bargain for this quality! If you like mild peated whisky, you should try this one.

    Presentation: all Scottish barley and new American oak barrels. Organic certified. Should be a nice market for that! At least it worked for me!
