    After a few glasses of this bottle that I opened couple of weeks ago I will try to give a proper review. I have been in quite a few conversations about the new design and it looks like I am the only one so far who likes the new design better than the old one. Of course it comes down to subjective opinions but there are still a lot of the old designs out there - so everyone can still get his / her favorite. I myself actually waited several weeks to find a retailer who has the new designs in stock. But to my knowledge the whisky itself is unchanged. I had a sample of the 10y before and really liked it. So I thought I can’t go wrong with the 15y. And sure you can’t. The first-fill-only premise of Benromach definitely adds to the experience. Nose: spiced dry fruits - cereals with trail mix - a very awesome mix of fresh, sweet and spicey - almost a bid salty - very rich - like buttered warm sweet corn with a pinch of grainy sea salt - then strawberries, green mango, raspberries, red grapes without being very sweet - soft chocolate flakes - also a bid like a fresh tapped beer (IPA-like) - only a hint of peat but so much that it definitely contributes a noticeable part of the overall experience. It is just so good. Palate: toasted dry spices of all sorts (juniper, pepper, nutmeg, cloves ... that kind ... with some salt) like the rub of a nice roast - more on the dry and less oily spectrum - plus a mild sweetness that nicely accompanies the spicy character and that makes it rich and very interesting - the peat gets a little more noticeable now. Finish: nicely woody - the spices cover your whole tongue and throat for a long time All in all a very great whisky if you like the more serious and spicy ones. I could do with a bid more smoothness / oiliness for a top tier rating. But nonetheless it is still a fantastic whisky that you can enjoy and analyze over a whole evening - it is that complex in my opinion.

    2020 Whiskey Exchange WOY hype made this one hard to find. Nice honey coat on the glass with legs that last forever. Nose is sweet and minty with a hint of campfire. The palate comes in waves - Sherry casks stand out, followed by noticeable spice. Rich chocolates, honey, toffee, and a mellow smoke finish. Worthy of the hype, filled with subtleties, and very, very good.🏆

    Honeyed graham cracker, brown sugar, plums, leather, light sherry, and a dash of medium peat smoke. Absolutely delicious.
