Not bad, not bad at all. It's not quite the peat monster I was expecting but a very nice dram. Think along the lines of a combination of Big Peat, Old Ballantruan & Bowmore Small Batch and your pretty much there. It may be very young (and it does show) but it ticks all the other boxes for me - 48%, unchillfiltered & natural colour. The BenRiach Quarter Cask is also worth considering, definitely more depth in that one.
I was not impressed with the first dram after cracking the bottle, thin and a bit acrid, but after a few days of oxygen it's lovely and the body has developed. Character is like a sweeter Ledaig 10 or Kilchoman Machir Bay, gently honey sweet, lively and happy, charred smoked haddock on the finish. Very nice, superb for the money, presumably because of its NAS. Really enjoying this, but if you want a smokey, rich and more sherried full-bodied BenRiach, go for the Septendecim.
great tasting perfectly smokey taste smooth going down just can`t get over the taste
BRBM has a beautiful nose, really grows on me; tried it head-to-head with Kilchoman Summer 2010 ... worlds apart. Highland peat is nutty and punchy, Islay peat is more floral and almondy. A bit pricey, LIKE A LOT. Also VERY different from Highland-Park heathery peat. One for the collection of a peat-head.
Nice, but quite a "young" whisky. The peatiness isn't as intense as in "curiositas". But still a very pleasant whisky.
Wow. Nice. Smoky, slightly medicinal, with a underlying honey vanilla sweetness accented with a salty meat fat flavor. A very good dram for the money I have to say!
