Whisky Reviews for Benromach 2006

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.82 points

  1. Kaltduscher scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Very powerful in the nose, but the alcohol is well integrated. In the foreground bright fruits. Apples. Pears. Peaches. Mirabelle. Behind it shows a fine peat smoke. Spicy notes. Some pepper. Oak. After half an hour, the malt becomes sweeter with vanilla cream and brown sugar.
    • Taste
      At first the peat smoke dominates. Then the malt becomes creamier. It shows honey and vanilla. Caramel. Pepper. Dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long. Sweet and malty at first. Behind it again some peat smoke. Dry and bitter finish with a lot of oak.

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    It's not very complex and has some rough edges. But it also has good qualities, like a nice amount of fruitiness and the subtle use of peat.
    • Nose
      Very clean and fresh, with a combination of subtle peat smoke and sweet fruits. Savory on the one hand, but sweet on the other. Candied lemon, vanilla, peaches. A tad perfumy.
    • Taste
      Creamy and oily. The peat dominates for a couple of seconds, but then makes way for stone fruits (peaches, nectarines) and vanilla custard.
    • Finish
      Hot and spicy finish (even with a dash of water), with lots of black pepper and cloves as well. Drying.
