    Benromach has been a favourite of mine since Gordon & MacPhail took over and started producing some amazing quality spirits. The single casks are no exception; worth picking up if you run across them! I do also really appreciate the old school Speyside nature with the touch of peat, it's done with such quality by Benromach, I think it would easily rival old Islay.
    • Nose
      87 87
      The nose is subtle to start, the first fill bourbon offers up that sweetness with a twist or floral and the Benromach peat swirls underneath. A bit of wet dog and a bit of malty porridge waft up, more florals and a touch of almost juniper.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The palate is a rollercoaster! At 59.4 it’s a sharp first dram, but the flavour is worth it. Huge smoke bomb opens up, sour peat and soft wood notes. Coffee grounds and oak tannins, leafy compost and rich peaty hard candies. This is a heavy load of peat and sweet, but there’s quite a bit of finesse in there too. Water settles the heat and brings up the sweets and some more stone fruits. Something like charred apricots and polished oak.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Let’s delve into the finish. It’s medium in length, lots of smoke but the finesse stands out now. Soft tannic peat and treacle fudge, hints of maple syrup and more jasmine florals. Spicy black pepper and smoked apples.
