- Specially bottled at Benromach distillery - exclusively for visitors, i.e. different bottling dates. See https://www.whiskyauctioneer.com/lot/169380/benromach-2006-single-cask-372-andre-thomas
- There's stuff that I like, but the alcohol is very present at only eight years of age.
Fairly alcoholic, but luckily it has more to offer. Vanilla and oak with fresh lemon squeeze and pink grapefruit as well, giving it a nice freshness. Only the slightest trace of peat.
As the nose already suggested, this is pretty sharp. Too much black pepper. Water takes care of that somewhat. Toffee and vanilla again, with a thin layer of nectarine.
Feisty, warming. Vanilla. Medium in length.
- This distillery exclusive bottling is a fresh, vibrant, attractive
and melow single malt. A lovely combination of a spectrum of fruity
sweetness and an intense but pleasant spiciness. Surprisingly easy to
drink neat, but turns into a spicy monster when water is added.
I thank Neil Martin from Rossmor Guest House in Grantown-on-Spey for the sample!
Clean and fresh on the nose. An intriguing combination of fruity and
savoury with lovely notes of apricots, subtle lemon balm and delicate
vanilla. Slightly alcoholic with gentle fragrant peat smoke in the back.
Sweet and fruity start on the palate with apricots, peaches and citric
flavours, accompanied by lingering notes of custard and toffee. Then the
alcohol sensation gently bites the tongue supported by a massive load
of warming spices - cinnamon, oak, black pepper and tender anise.
Develops on a prickling oaky flavour. Quite vibrant!
The finish is long, warm, and creamy sweet. Mouthcoating with a light
maltiness and a lively lemon touch. Slightly drying on the tail.
WITH WATER: There's more fruit coming through with a splash of water.
While vanilla and toffee are still present, the gentle peat smoke's
almost vanished. Water enhances the spiciness on the palate with an
increasing amount of hot chilli. Sharp and warm. The fruitiness is
almost tamed. The finish is long, still hot, creamy and very dry.
