  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    an outing for a birthday, is it celebrating or not?
    • Nose
      Menthol and vanilla freshness
      fine smoke coming
      roasted seeds, apple, chocolate, vanilla again and a return iodized with lemon a little cooked
    • Taste
      macerated fruit, then spices on pepper, a little nutmeg, it's a little rough
      we still have seeds, the smoke disappears on the cold ashes, that of the chimney in the early morning
      vanilla spring stronger as well as orange
      dry wooded return
    • Finish
      holds in the bottom of the palate, a little tannic
      vanilla, ash
      late wooded
      final that lasts

    Nose on the orange blossom with cold ashes and a hint of strawberry, not furiously expressive at the opening but aeration clarifies the peat. Pleasant texture, quite thick, veil of smoke and a little licorice. Finale of good length on the fading smoke and a veil of bitter orange. A very nice and flawless dram.

    superb Light peat well integrated with a very pleasant freshness. A spicy side with slight saline wave and a long finish that stays in the mind.

    Straw color, nose close to Benromach Peat Smoke drunk just before, but where everything is a little more expressive and developed. On the palate it remains on a fairly simple aromatic, peat, vanilla, ash, lemon, earth, but with a large scale, a bold side, alcohol is perfectly integrated, much longer final than the previous one.

  5. Monsieur Dram scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Once again, Benromach amazes us. This young and fiery single cask of 8 years surprises with its maturity, its complexity, its balance. A nice selection from the Whisky House. Some say that 100 € for an 8 year old whisky is expensive. I would rather say that 100 € for an excellent whisky, by the times, it is a bargain.
    • Nose
      clean, straight and generous. It changes the classic range that is fatter I think. Here we are on something more sharp, sharper, more cutting edge. It starts with roasted cereal notes, embellished with dark chocolate, hazelnuts and almonds. On top, a hint of candied citrus, pear, with some mint leaves and vanilla pods. That was the dessert ... It's like that at Benromach, we start with the end! Then we have a more salty pan, with notes of olives, anchovies all in a fine and delicate smoke, tinged with ashes. To finish, it's on spices that this 8-year-old Benromach for LMDW takes us, with classic things like cinnamon, but also more original, like turmeric and ginger. Nice trip
    • Taste
      powerful and just as generous as the nose. The sharp side of the nose is expressed in the mouth by an exceptional precision of the aromas. The smoked aspect is here more present. Ash notes are important, as are roasted cereals. It is also more vegetal than the nose, revealing fruit not quite ripe. On the other hand, we find a nice freshness mentholée, the acidity of the lime, the enchanting perfume of licorice and the passion of ginger and salt. And then, there is this marker of modern Benromach, a kind of rubbery note that further complicates whisky. Superb.
    • Finish
      it's fresh, it's long, it's good. We still have notes of lemon ash, olives and ginger in the mouth, and it lasts about ten minutes ... I am conquered!
