(48,4%, The Whiskyman for Vinothek Massen 2013, ex-bourbon cask, 118 btl.)

Nose: all the fruity brightness we expected. Juicy pears, apples with soft cinnamon and hints of pineapple. Lemon candy and Frosties. Some buttercups and freshly cut grasses. Vanilla custard. In the background, there’s also a buttery / waxy note. Very fresh and aromatic and nicely summery. Mouth: sweet and candied. Pear and apple galore again, mixed with citrus and a herbal sharpness (ginger, mustard, pepper). The barley and yeast shines through – very natural whisky. Fades on grapefruit zest and tonic bitterness. Finish: medium long, clean and fruity, with a slightly eau-de-vie kind of alcohol tang.

In summer I’m not looking for heavy, complex drams, so this will work out fine. Around € 80, only available from Vinothek Massen.

Score: 87/100

  • Chris: Based on price and transparency alone I'd pick this over the shoddy HP Dark Origins any day. Benromach continues to win me over. While I may not drink
  • Roberto Sikora: Benromach seem to do great things these days. Thumbs up for an uncommon age statement!
  • Fredrik: I recently made a promise not to buy or try NAS whisky anymore. It will sadly go unnoticed but that´s how I feel about this.
