Serge from Whiskyfun says:Benromach 1976/2012 (46%, OB, sherry cask) Colour: pale gold. Nose: hold on, this is quite superb! It’s a much fruitier and softer version of Benromach, with some soft tropicalness (bananas) and whiffs of crushed mint leaves, then a little bergamot and a delicate oakiness, between cigarette tobacco and herbal teas. The menthol tends to come to the front though, you have to like that. I certainly do, but that may suggest an overoaky palate, let’s see… Mouth: creamy/fruity ala Benriach, but what I had feared is happening, that is to say a growing liquoricy/mentholy oak slowly taking over. Banana skin. There are fresh tropical fruits as well (pineapples, guavas), and indeed a growing sherriness going towards walnuts and even salt ala manzanilla (old style, pasada), which might be a little segmenting, as they say in French marketing, but which may save it provided you like manzanilla. Finish: long, with more walnuts, some green coffee, more tobacco, and quite a lot of nutmeg. Salty aftertaste. Comments: a little disconcerting at times. The ‘manzanilla’ in it is fabulous, but the oak might be a notch drying. Very hard to score. Yup, t’s segmenting. SGP:461 - 85 points.
