Benromach Traditional (Scottish Whisky :Speyside Single Malt: 5-6 Years?:40%)

Visual: Light, pale and clear

Viscosity: Thin fast forming streaks in multitude.

Nose: Light, grassy and earthy. Touch of salt and punch of alcohol. Hayfields.

Body: Light honey, lavender. Vanilla, barley and honeycomb pudding. Syrup.

Finish: Light oak, grain, slight syrup nature.

Conclusion: A surprisingly complex young whisky. Its alcohol punch is noticeable but far from overwhelming. It has a fine light and grassy character.

Water helps remove the slight alcohol excess and adds a slight liquoriceness.

All in all a fine whisky and I look forwards to what Benromach do with their shortly due ten year versions of the whisky. (Note the ten year has been released since this tasting note and is very nice)
