Vexer gave this whisky 92 points

Nose – This has only had a few days to open up but already it’s an enormous, waxy, old bourbon cask fruit bomb. Vimto, toffee apple, musky oak floorboards, travel sweets – so, so juicy. The wood is balanced but intense, lacquered and sappy. An enormous, but elegant nose. With water, much gentler fruits, with warm, waxy wood and musk, and gentle citrus notes.

Body – Fruity, then very spicy, then a massive amount of wood spice and wax, and ancient wood – bannisters and floorboards, library wood. And still juicy. With water, lots of the fruit intensity is lost and that strident wood structure comes through more.

Finish – Very long, oily and intense. Quite hot, almost metallic, with cough sweets and lingering wood. Burps are of Asian fruits and Thai food.

"There's no accounting for taste" ...So, you can't pay for it.

Nose : Apple, pear at first with a pinch of salt. Quickly turns citrusy, lighly grassy and spicy. Hints of vanilla and pastry.

Mouth : Oily and juicy. Citrus again, bringing some sourness, nicely mixed with honey. A bit of wood and grass at the end.

Finish : Long. Honey, vegetal and smoky. And tropical fruits.


This one has to be sipped slowly. A very elegant nose, very nice mouth and a surprising finish. Didn't expect these tropical fruits. Excellent.

Tasting from october 2016.

Farbe: Blas­ses Gold
Nase: Ölig und grasig-frisch mit leicht dumpf-fruchtigen Aro­men von Quit­ten­mar­me­lade und Jam. Ebenso Noten von Leder und Vanil­le­scho­ten sowie ein metal­li­scher Geruch von Blech­do­sen.
Geschmack: Oran­gen – Grand Mar­nier, dazu Rauch, eine sich auf­bau­ende Mine­ra­li­tät und herbe Kräu­ter. Im Bei­pack süßer Honig mit gespick­ter Grape­fruit. Zum Finish hin immer „grü­ner“ wer­dend, mit rau­chi­gem Holz im Übergang.
Finish: Lang – fruchtig-herb und erfri­schend mit Lemon und Grape­fruit, Kräu­tern, Honig und inten­si­vem Rauch. Mit Noten von tro­pi­schen Früch­ten und Chi­na­gras sowie etwas Kakao endend.

Mr.Sandwich gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

Süßer Malz, kandierte Früchte, eine ganz leichte Rauchnote, etwas Salz  Apfelsaft, "Saure Gummi" - man könnte diese Note aber auch als Grapefruit beschreiben. Grade dieses Säuerliche gibt diesem Benromach das gewisse Etwas. Das Holz gibt Würze dazu, bleibt aber im Hintergrund. 

Taste

Sehr fett und süß, aber auch mit "Saurem Gummi" bzw. Pampelmuse. Es entwickelt sich ein Wechselspiel von Süße und Säure, welches diesen Malt sehr interessant und lebhaft macht. Das Holz tritt teilweise etwas deutlicher hervor, aber auf eine angenehme Weise. Da dies ein Whisky von mittlerem Gewicht ist, sind die 52,9% alc/vol hier genau richtig. 

Finish

Langer und süßer Abgang mit Salz und einer ganz leichten Bitterkeit.

Cadenhead Tasting Notes:

Nose: Really fresh and bursting with juicy fruits.
Palate:
The palate continues with the fruit bomb along with a touch of oakiness which reveals this whiskies maturity.
Finish:
Light oak notes in the finish give way to wave after wave of the syrupy tropical fruits.
