Whisky Reviews for Benromach Organic

- Wouldn't buy again
Pleasent sweet easy drinking. Bit thin.
Nice 10ppm peating level. Uses virgin American oak casks.
- 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.
- On the whole, Benromach is not my style at all, this bio-resin-tone says nothing to me.
Oak, some malt with vanilla, banana, cream, coffee, in between also berries
Pepper and toffee, bananas with honey, oak bark, toasted notes and some chocolate, tree resin
Peppery dry, malt, oak, creamy, medium-long
- 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 !
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.
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.
quite intense, lots of spices, vanilla, and then this clove, imposing ...
- Nose: some peat at first. some liquorish
Initial taste: sweet oakiness, and some peat
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!
