Benromach Traditional smells like a doctor’s office. Very weak elements of peat and a vague sweetness mark the palate, but the alcohol is strong. The finish is so short and the whisky so forgettable that you are not quite sure that you actually drank it. At least five more years in a barrel would do this one some good. Skip it!

I don't know if they have changed the whisky in the bottle, but I recently gave this another try and really liked it.

I've seen comments elsewhere about the variable flavor and quality of this expression. The two bottles I've sampled in the past 4 months were very consistent, so maybe they've improved their quality control. Still, the flavor is quite simple; it makes me think of a lighter Irish whiskey with a moderate amount of peat smoke.
