    Instead of dominating the spirit, the Château Cissac cask and the Benromach profile work really well together in this iteration. My favourite of the Wood Finish Series so far.
    • Nose
      Classic Benromach peat smoke and sweetness, with a barbecue-esque meatiness, accompanied by blueberries, plums and dark cherries. There's some soft notes of stewed pears in the background. Best of all—no sulphur at all. Excellent!
    • Taste
      A whiff of pepper with lingering smoke and soot, as well as fried bacon and milk chocolate. Not very fruity, yet there's a hint of maraschino cherries here.
    • Finish
      Lingering barbecue smoke, a touch of peat and some charred orange peel.
