Benromach Peat Smoke Sherry Cask 70cl
Hints of honey cured meats mingling with zingy orange marmalade. Creamy vanilla develops with traces of chocolate, spiced dried fruit and a subtle note of dried tobacco. Deliciously sweet top notes and a hint of warming white pepper appear, followed by touches of rich stewed prunes, sultanas and raisins complemented by sherry undertones. Delicate hints of ginger develop on the tongue with a lingering edge of bonfire embers on the finish.
Savour the nose as it develops. Lemon, honey and vanilla aromas perfectly balance the distinctive smokiness. A sumptuous medley of rich fruits, tangy citrus and delicate hint of spice and sherry give way to rich smooth chocolate and a lingering edge of seriously gorgeous smokiness.
