Benromach Traditional
Colour: straw yellow with greenish glints.
Nose: fresh and elegant, it reveals nice vanilla hints, herbal ones (cut hay) and is slightly peated. After aeration, it develops on citrus fruits (orange, lemon)
Palate: smooth, it is marked by cereals, vanilla and liquorice. It develops peaty/smoky hints (malted barley)
Finish: nice and lingering, it recalls delicate hints of ripe fruits (candied orange, quince) on a background of floral notes (violet). It makes think at a Islay whisky
(la Maison du Whisky)
Personal Comment
A rather discrete nose, where malt and peat are mixed, before some hay hints appear after aeration. In the palate, a certain lack at power first denies the hopes the nose rose; dominated by malt and after a while light touches of citrus fruit come and bright the feeling up. A very long finish, recalling vanilla. A very pleasant bottle.

The nose reveals mainly malted hints with touches of peat. In the palate, some hints of vanilla mixed to walnut touches on a malty background. The finish, rather long, recalls the bitter taste of unripe walnut, mixed to smoother cereal notes.
79/100
A nice nose, with hints of malted barley and a light touch of peat mixed with some acid notes followed by a touch of cocoa. In the palate, it is rather flat and gives a watery impression. No complexity but a pleasant sensation of a well balanced and flawless malt. The finish is relatively short and doesn't leave an unforgettable impression. Nice barley hints however.

Comment by Johannes_Sauer
Colour: Pale, fine golden Nose: Soft peat smoke combined with cane sugar, caramel and a well marked maltiness, very young and not boring at all. Later there are whalenuts and soft hints of almonds and wet hay. A whiff from the countryside. There seems to be more alcohol in the nose than the 40% may suggest. A strong and promising nose. Taste: Very balanced between the soft peat and sugar. A very fulfilling and chewy mouthfeel. There are nice cedarwood notes and herbal bitterroot notes always backed by sugary maltiness. Finish: This seems the problem to me, very short after the first and very impressing entrance the nice mouthfeel gives way to some kind of bitterness which is very pleasant (extra dry) to me but leaves a surprising flat and medium short impression. On the very end I notice some funny metallic copper notes. Conc.: This is the perfect every-day-dram to me and a great aperetif. Perhaps one should try an older bottling to gain a deeper complexity.

Benromach Peat Smoke
Personal Comment
A very rich nose, revealing a nice oily peat together with flowers and fruit. Nice complexity where honey notes appear behind a veil of smoke and slightly medicinal notes in the middle of a bunch of flowers. Some pear as well. In the palate, the first impression is a kind of slightly woody bitterness developing quickly on a citrus acidity before coming back on beautiful nutty notes and nice peat hints. Delicious mix of earth and fruit. Very amazing mouth, really refined and very pleasant. The finish is lingering and keeps the memory of both peat and nice fruity hints.

A pleasant mix of peat and smoke combined with some animal hints announce a nice dram.
A beautiful oily peat characterises the palate which is quite pleasant even if not really complex. The high percentage of alcohol does not hinder.
The finish remains very oily and is quite long, prolonging perfectly the nose and mouth impressions.

Comment by Johannes_Sauer
Colour: Light golden brown (natural).
Nose: Honey and beewax, combined with concentrated vanilla and whiffs of sweet pipe tobacco smoke. There is also whalenuts and later dried hay and straw stacked in a clean haybarn.
Taste: Much less sweet than the nose has promised. The alcohol pretty thick in the beginning, but all notes are easy to notice. More of the hay and straw, turkish whalenut halva with honey and sweet smoke, backed by crisp and clean malt. Beautiful young spirit in very dominant oak.
Finish: Medium long. Sweet and smoky with noticeable soft metallic coppery notes.
Conc.: A fine dram, young and very expressive. A great “Old Style” highlander with an very own character and style.
