Benromach Peat Smoke, 46%Benromach
A delicious peated Speyside single malt from Benromach distillery, now owned by independent bottler Gordon & Macphail.
This whisky aims to bring back the older style of Speyside whisky, when distilleries were still malting the majority of their own barley using local peat. The peat smoke here is more gentle and floral than that found in many Islay whiskies, so it's the ideal dram to start a journey of enjoying smoky malts.
Aged in a combination of sherry and ex-bourbon casks, there is great balance between rich smoky notes of chocolate and roasted nuts, and some lighter flavours of orchard fruits and menthol.
A classic Speyside single malt presented in Benromach's shiny new packaging.
