Although this Scotch is peated like Islays, the smoke tastes more like campfire BBQ than rubber tyres. The sweet flavours (vanilla, golden fruits, caramel) and the smoke mingle well, allowing some of the nuttiness from the sherry to waft through without being overpowering. This is one of those whiskies that stimulates the palate and actually makes one hungry for food. Would be an insanely delicious pairing with pastrami or smokey hams.
Nic our buyer says;
'Owned by independent bottler and distributor Gordon & MacPhail, Benromach distillery produce some of the best all-rounder Single Malts out there. Some rich, sweet dried fruits, some spice, some smoke, nothing overdone or outlandish, it's a textbook execution and a great place to start. If you're not afraid of something bolder, try the Cask Strength. It packs a punch, but it's aaallll good.'
