Benromach 2008 Peat Smoke
Donald,
This seemed a bit watered down compared to others.

Robert,
Maybe my favorite Whisky in my collection. The peat reminds me of BBQ.

Very tasty with good smokiness

Mehdi,
Lingering warm finish with vanilla after taste. Harsh on the nose but the finish makes up for it.

Paul,
A speyside single malt scotch whisky, matured on sherry & bourbon casks. The long riping procesdd took care that the smokey hints made the whisky softer. A balanced sherry smell with hints of vanilla. The taste: fruity cake, red apple and kiwi. After adding a few drops of water straight away tones of other aroma's like nutmeg, cinnamon, sweet nits and honey. Very good to combine with a good cigar, like > CAO Pilón Corona (longfiller)

Tzvetomir,
Smokey, fruit flavors, chocolate and light peat. Definitely one of my favorite as the best one I tried so far is a 7 for me.

Lloyd,
For myself, like the Connemara peated Irish, this is something I very much enjoyed. I like my peat smoke and this was smooth, smoky and wonderful. I will be adding this to my collection.

Brandon,
First smell didn’t smell that smoky, but the start is obviously the rich peat smoke. Quickly clears and mellows to a fruit and honey sweetness, finishing with a hint of salt that gets amplified with a sip of water. I would drink this as an after dinner sweet and savory aperitif.

Antti,
It is an outstanding, intense, '9 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky with a a rich & aromatic birth; while an tart & oily life leads to a long smoky & salty death with a touch of menthol.

Perfect smoke.

Maybe a bit too peaty...
Benromach 2008 Peat Smoke
marlynn,
Peat and sweet nose. Smoky, peat, coal forward. Honey finish that is short with a salty linger. Very bold. Needs a good cigar and a fire. What you would envision a good scotch to taste like.

Joseph,
Solid peat flavor but not overpowering. Good long finish similar to a lagavulin or laphroaig entry level.

Krist,
It never made it to my house, lost in shipment. Flaviar really needs to fix their shipping issues.

Deja,
It’s ok.

Randy,
i tried this because the Flavor Spiral was similar to my favorite, Aberlour, and a slightly lower price point. Upon tasting, it is a bit more peaty than I like, but the finish is much like Aberlour. I found that if I kept it off the tip of my tongue, and let it roll to the back and sides before swallowing, it reduced the peat tang quite a bit. Glad I tried it, but I will not likely buy it again.

The king of smooth. Dry and flavorful.

Jeremy,
Very smooth, as the first Scotch Whiskey I’ve had in weeks and on a super clean palate, I couldn’t believe how smooth it was with the perfect smoky flavor.

One of the best scotches I've tasted

Strong peat flavor overpowers other blends

Robert,
good punch of Peat but not overpowering. Great with 1 ice cube
Benromach 10 Year Old
Mikel,
not a big fan but I prefer Highlands anyway. That said it is rather smooth with an easy finish despite the peat.

Daniel,
Lots of peat in this one. If you want something that gives that flavor, this is a good one to go for.
Benromach 10 Year Old
Stephen,
I don’t agree with the flavor spiral on this one. I definitely got some peaty mossy flavor like Laphroig but with a sweeter finish. I really like this Scotch for a cool night. Great warming drink without the harsh burn finish.

Todd,
Heavily peated, yet very smooth.
Benromach 10 Year Old
James,
I really liked this scotch. It was just a shot in the dark and it hit the mark. Nice sweet notes and not too peaty. The smokey oak notes were nice and not too strong which allowed the raspberry flavor to come through. The I liked it slightly chilled over an ice cube.

Julian,
Love this scotch. It’s definitely a newer feel to an old style whiskey. The salty/sweet goes well with after dinner snack or even desert. My usual go to scotch is a bottle of Talisker Storm, this time I figured I would wander outside of my comfort zone, and I’m glad I did. It’s a very well balanced scotch (not TOO smoky or peaty, but not TOO clean) and it sits perfectly in between sweet caramel and savory/spicy, possibly making this my new all occasion scotch!

E,
Upon opening the bottle, you'll get a wif of sweetness, which is quite contrary to the smoky spiciness that'll slap your taste buds at first taste. Take another sip and let the spiciness settle down to really taste the sweet and warm aftertaste. Add a few drops of water and you'll notice that the subtle fruitiness comes out ever so slightly more to give the flavors a more rounded flavor. If, at first, you don't like the taste or the harsh punch to your throat, take another sip, and another, and soon you'll find an acquired taste for it. I would definitely not describe this whisky as mild or easy-to-drink (especially not to someone who's a whisky novice), but it does get deeper and better with each succeeding sip. The harsh punch and the smoky flavors at the beginning are similar to that of Laphroaig 10 but with a significant amount of spice and a sweet aftertaste. It's definitely a complex one, this Benromach 10.

Tamara,
Loved the smokey peat in this whiskey. It won the taste testing at our whiskey tasting party. Have purchased it a few times now and it is always our go to. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

Michael,
It tries very hard to please but only succeeds somewhat....the flavor loses itself in the harsh bite on the back of the throat.

Cristie,
Kind of reminds me of formaldehyde.

Jesse,
Nice peaty aroma and very smooth finish. Love the light spice and light smoke notes. Not overpowering. Fruity notes are well balanced in the forefront and finish

Light smoke light Pete I prefer more Hardy flavors but elegant after all

Hit me with your best shot. Fire (tasting) away.

Thomas,
It was too strong on the ash flavor. The cask flavor completely overwhelmed all other flavors.

Jeremy,
Nice, somewhat smooth and easy drinking scotch with a little spice.

Larry,
Ah yes. Two thumbs up. Very interesting smoke filled flavor with a hint of sherry. I’ve not been a fan of traditional speyside scotch until now. I anxiously await the delivery of a full bottle.

Chris,
Top end taste at incredible value. One of the most interesting flavours I've ever had. Lots of sherry with a good hit of peat in there too.

David,
This one actually grew on me and warmed up to it. After my first drink I was not a fan but it grew on me and ended up enjoying it after all.

Matthew,
Stays on your tongue a little longer than most. You can taste it for a while after. I mean that in a good way. Sherry, a bit of smoke, maybe honey? Nice thickness. Real good.

Mediocre. Spicy without sophistication or layers.

Good taste. Texture seems slightly thicker than others.

Chris,
Was not my favorite, this was harsh to drink, not smooth at all and had a rough aftertaste.

guest,
I don't often repeat bottles, but this was a no brainer. It has the power of youth, and the character of a malt a wee bit older than 10. Recommended for Springbank fans.
