Benromach 2012 Peat Smoke Sherry Cask Matured Description
Whisky fans can allow themselves to be a little excited for this new release. There was great enthusiasm the last time Benromach decided to produce a dram that was completely foreign to their signature range, and this is no different.
A small-batch expression, this Benromach Peat Smoke Sherry Cask Matured is a rarity. It is only the second time that Benromach have produced a truly peaty, heavily sherried malt. Laid down in 2012 into first-fill sherry hogshead casks before being bottled in 2021, this whisky has a cask-imparted light mahogany colour.
For us, we love it when distilleries take a risk to create something truly out of the ordinary, and they have succeeded here. Have a wee taste and find out for yourself!
Nose: cinnamon, ginger, soft demerara sugar.
Palate: cocoa powder, honeycomb, stewed red berries, vanilla, pepper.
Finish: full-bodied finish, with cherry, peat smoke and lingering sweetness.
