Nose
Malty and slightly lactic. Buttery. Milk parlour. Then a note of dampness. Cider cellar. Hint of wet moss. With water, a touch of leather.
Palate
Satin-like. Sour fruit. Bramley apple cooked in a ginger syrup. Drying on ground ginger.
Finish
Dry, spicy.
Comment
Give this whisky time to open on a sweeter side.

Rob Allanson

78
Nose
Stewed fruits with a little cream, green apples. A hint of shaved oak. Hard toffee bars and just a gentle hint of tobacco ash.
Palate
At first mixed spice, ginger, cinnamon. Then more fruit emerges, raspberries and blueberries. A hint of liquorice at the end too.
Finish
Pleasantly warming.
Comment
A good addition to the Benromach Distillery range.
