  1. Shane_IL scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It’s a very affordable dram, at a modest age, and surprisingly complex and balanced.

    Tasted at a Malt Mongers Israel Evening and Reviewed in my blog: https://iwriteaboutstuffilike.com/2016/06/18/malt-mongers-israel-red-wine-finish-night/
    • Nose
      Sulphury. Match heads. Leather. Creme brulee. Mulch. Seville oranges. Toffee.
    • Taste
      Spice. Red grapefruit. Cacao. Bitter seaweed.
    • Finish
      Long. Plenty woodspice. More grapefruit. Bitter wood.

  2. Torfding scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A very interesting Benromach with a slightly intrusive wine finish. Actually a good drop, but personally I would prefer the two 10s and the 15s.
    • Nose
      many hard-to-allocate fruit notes, vinous with a subtle hint of menthol, heavy sweetness, warm apple, citrus fruit, vanilla, slightly lightly scorched wood and a hint of cinnamon
    • Taste
      Fruit acid (kiwi), oak, red and sour fruits (but rather no cherries, maybe a little sour cherries), spiced wine, gentle smoke, some pepper
    • Finish
      medium to long, spicy, oak, some chocolate, a hint of beef

    [Color] amber;
    • Nose
      intense, fruity spicy, overlying grapes
    • Taste
      strong onset, fruits (cherries, dates), lots of oak, spices (pepper, cinnamon), intense but slightly out of round;
    • Finish
      medium long, intense, fruity; in the end some smoke;

  5. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Hermitage is always a divisive finish, I think it's nice with the Benromach character.
    • Nose
      Sulphur and phosphorus. Orange liqueur. Smoked meats, rubber, forest fruits and menthol.
    • Taste
      Grapefruit, gooseberry and dark chocolate. Acidic wines and spicy oak.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, dry.

  6. domani scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nice whisky. Nose and aroma almost identical, the fruit did not come through me so. The finish is its weak spot otherwise a really exciting whisky from which a whole bottle is worth. Benromach is already fun - 09.12.2017
    • Nose
      Musty, bacon, salami, smoked aromas, earthy, dirty, these heavy aromas cover the fruit, spicy, gravy, nutmeg, pink pepper, raisins, red berries
    • Taste
      Very dry the first sip, earthy, greasy, buttery, sweet, creamy, creamy, syrup, mild, pink pepper, spicy, slightly woody, espresso, honey
    • Finish
      Short
