      Barley, old apples...some cheese and smoke. Pretty fresh.
    • Finish

      Seasoning, fruity and slightly sweet. Too short and boring.

  2. Lenart scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    The nose made more interesting with the addition of benromach's peat. However the palate is bland with some sour notes popping here and there.

    Flavor has bright notes of fresh berries, currants, apples, cinnamon, spices (curry). Flavor and taste has sour calvados notes. Taste is reach and sweet with notes of berries, currants, dried fruits, oak. Finish is very stable and long.

    after the fact, we feel in the empty glass the cereals (and we can almost smell toasted bread if we feel it at a sufficient distance after the tasting)
    • Nose
      sweet, very cereal, I feel mainly malt that spring
    • Taste
      always light, at first, the malt is felt and soon gives way to a side very nice grilled wood.
      Back touches are lightly fruity can be like dried or cooked fruits. In the long run, a smoked side (almost tobacco) comes to us.
      With a little water, we would smell vanilla and spices, but anesthetize the other flavors present.
    • Finish
      Nice, malty but far too short.

  7. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Marketing completely next to the plate, but blind it remains very good in the absolute!
    We are sold for red berries and we are dealing with a single malt right and right.

    • Nose
      Peat and bacon balance nicely with more malty notes. A fruity hard enough to understand is underlying
    • Taste
      Where are the notes of red wine advertised on the box? If not in the roundness that I perceive? A roundness that complements the aromas perceived in the nose, and gives balance to this dram which I perceive the relative youth. But it works well
    • Finish
      Rather short, with an empty cereal glass.

  8. Achany scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    malt, a lot of spices, oak, some traces of vanilla, and it takes some time until the Grapes, the dark fruits from the cissac casks open up and make this dram a really fine experience. this benromach does reward patience after opening. finish a little short but still - we liked it!

  9. Sonett scored this whisky 71 points Connoisseur

    Not worth the cost.
    • Nose
      Wine influenced nose with some sherry tones. Leather, hay and sugarcane
    • Taste
      Light and thin, lots of tannins, licorice, peppery and harsh
    • Finish
      Rather short and unpleasant, with a sweet tannins finale

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 71 points Connoisseur

    Underlay with musky and warm oat. Apparent winery characters of raisin,
    brandy liqueur and fresh leather. Light peat linger in the middle and
    airy light cocoa. Complex and full of potential but to smoothen certain
    rough edges.

    Taste:- Light body
    and frizzy, crisp and prickly. Mouth filled tannin and layers with soft
    smoke make the bold presents. Hints of under ripe berries, drying out.
    Chewy but towards harsh.

    Finish:- Smooth, medium length. Hot and peppery mouth coating. Lightly hollow and spirity. Lack depth. Raw.
