    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      The 15-year-old Benromach immediately reveals his potential: Dry sherry notes, sweet fruits, baked apples, freshly cut oranges, honey and vanilla are among my first impressions. The longer the malt can breathe, the more changeable and complex it becomes: strong spices (nutmeg), freshly ground pepper, subtle tobacco notes, delicate hints of wax, milk chocolate, some oak and light campfire smoke follow. The alcohol (43%) is very well integrated. The harmonious, complex and changeable nose convinces me right away.
    • Taste
      Slightly oily and powerful, the Benromach occurs: Sweet-sour fruit notes are provided with an additional Pfeffrigkeit on the tongue tip. The sherry notes take on a more intense flavor: grapefruit, apples, overripe peaches, plums, red fruits, vanilla, honey and chocolate blend with spicy oak, nutmeg, nuts, leather, tobacco and light campfire smoke. Hints of mineral notes refine the multilayered overall impression. A slight dryness on the palate is already present.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, sweet and spicy and slightly smoky. Freshly ground pepper sets a final exclamation point at the tip of the tongue, before the fruit notes (slightly exotic undertone) with vanilla are again pleasantly present. Herbs, salty chocolate, leather, spicy oak notes and light camp fire smoke complete the finish. A slight dryness remains.

  2. Donwaldorf did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very far from the level of success in his little brother of 10 years .... a dram that is drunk but nothing folichon. (Blinded)
    • Nose
      Nose instead Sherry, very light with notes of coffee and sulfur.
    • Taste
      Attack with light spices, pique a little anyway. Some notes of chocolate mingle with the dance.
    • Finish
      A bit short, mainly on spices and cocoa.

  3. Joschbert scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    rarely had such distinct tobacco aromas in a whisky, especially the finish I like very well A little higher alcohol content would be appropriate for the price, would certainly be interesting to experiment, but it is not too weak at 43% on the chest. a total of 90-91
    • Nose
      Toasted oak, cinnamon, baked apple, leather, oranges, mint, raisins, licorice tobacco (88)
    • Taste
      Sandalwood, BBQ sauce, grilled meat marinated with honey, again baked apple, dried plums, becomes drier (90)
    • Finish
      Black Tea, Herbs (Sage), Tobacco, Pipe Ash, Furniture Polish - Long (92)

    I am a friend of> 15 years but this whisky is having a hard time getting a good picture against its younger 10s. First of all: for me 50/50. Both have what the other one does not have and vice versa.

      Orange peel, apples, honey lined with soft ash smoke. The sherry is disturbed by the alcohol? Then a little pepper, cooked fruits and honey again. Woody malt. So quite interesting.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Buy fruits like apple and pear, some mandarin. Chocolate and then nutty smoke. Now it is getting bitter by the spice cargo. I feel pepper and anise. Then herbs and a little eucalyptus. The smoke is less noticeable here than on the nose.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium to shorter. He just goes there and at the same time you taste the chocolate with herbs and fresh grass. One thing must be left to him: the aromas work together harmoniously and the higher age makes the peat smoke very pleasantly mined here.

  10. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Becomes more delicious with other slips, gains more strength and fruit, has some nice notes and is at least my favorite Benromach (without having had the 30s;))
    • Nose
      Grapefruit, some light raisins, organic honey and resin as usual with Benromach, autumn leaves, grapefruit, a fire in the garden, eucalyptus, grown apple peel, but always a touch of sherry looks over, a bit bitter orange in between
    • Taste
      Light raisins, grilled apple and lemon peel, grapefruit, resin, organic honey, dusty furniture, autumn foliage, rough leather, eucalyptus and mint, somewhat sticky
    • Finish
      Grapefruit, resin, dry leaves, honey, nice orange peel, strong, dry and fruity, medium long
