The 15-year-old Benromach immediately reveals his potential: Dry sherry notes, sweet fruits, baked apples, freshly cut oranges, honey and vanilla are among my first impressions. The longer the malt can breathe, the more changeable and complex it becomes: strong spices (nutmeg), freshly ground pepper, subtle tobacco notes, delicate hints of wax, milk chocolate, some oak and light campfire smoke follow. The alcohol (43%) is very well integrated. The harmonious, complex and changeable nose convinces me right away.
Slightly oily and powerful, the Benromach occurs: Sweet-sour fruit notes are provided with an additional Pfeffrigkeit on the tongue tip. The sherry notes take on a more intense flavor: grapefruit, apples, overripe peaches, plums, red fruits, vanilla, honey and chocolate blend with spicy oak, nutmeg, nuts, leather, tobacco and light campfire smoke. Hints of mineral notes refine the multilayered overall impression. A slight dryness on the palate is already present.
Medium to long, sweet and spicy and slightly smoky. Freshly ground pepper sets a final exclamation point at the tip of the tongue, before the fruit notes (slightly exotic undertone) with vanilla are again pleasantly present. Herbs, salty chocolate, leather, spicy oak notes and light camp fire smoke complete the finish. A slight dryness remains
