  • Excerpt: Really good, and generally under rated, I think. This has a great nose and palate, and the finish carries nicely as well. If you're in the market for a sweet, bread-y, balanced dram with some present but not aggressive smoke, this is the dram for you.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is a well aged core line expression from Benromach, a Speyside Scotch distiller.

  • Nose:

    Honey, caramel, graham crackers and smores. Really sweet, bread forward notes. Some faint smoke, some salinity here.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. No real heat here. Ashy smoke, caramel and toffee. Nice and sweet, like a vanilla sundae with butter scotch, with some light ashy, wood-y smoke in the background. Fainy salinity.

  • Finish:

    Long, sweet and lightly smokey. This is really nice. Ashy and mineral smoke, with lots of vanilla, apple, toffee, vanilla and some light cocoa.

  • Overall:

    Really good, and generally under rated, I think. This has a great nose and palate, and the finish carries nicely as well. If you're in the market for a sweet, bread-y, balanced dram with some present but not aggressive smoke, this is the dram for you.
