The reviewed sample was compliments of @Nock, from a bottle opened 8 weeks ago, and approximately 80% full

Nose: very pleasant medium-sweet peat of strong intensity; slight grapey wine flavours; relatively fragrant underlying malt; some high-pitched crystalline sugar. This is mellow, yet with sufficient strength of flavour...a good solid nose

Taste: sweeter on the palate than in the nose; the wine seems a little stronger; the peat seems less pointed and a little less intense; otherwise the nose flavours translate to the palate; sweet balances bitter

Finish: moving more toward the bitter on the finish, but still quite pleasant

Balance: decent balance of sweet against bitter; the peat is very tasty here; there is lots of flavour in this 10 yo malt. Benromach 10 yo is a solid choice

Was this the new 2014 presentation, or the old bottle?

This must be the new bottle.

Curious as well to the bottling...

2 stores nearby have the older bronze colored metal cylinder expression (which I had, and enjoyed).

Wonder if there's any difference between the new/old bottlings in terms of flavor?
