    Benromach Peat Smoke 2004 - 2013, Original Bottling, 46% alc.
    Expansion: Ex-Bourbon barrels
    Region: Speyside, Scotland

    Nose: vanilla and peat smoke, lightly charred grilled meats, bratwurst, charcoal. Behind it green / yellow bananas and apricot, maybe peach, unripe strawberries, forest honey. The smoke covers these flavors but some time, hand warmth helps here.

    Palate: Smoke and pepper, chestnuts and nuts, light fruit notes (goes in the direction of juice oranges). Somehow pipe tobacco.

    Finish: Very long and smoky, peppery and spicy. Remains on the tongue for a long time. This is where the tobacco also plays.

    Conclusion: A very nice, with 54 ppm tormented Speyside single malt, which can easily be compared with Islay whiskys.

    88/100 points (tasted 2014, approx. 45,00 €) published on: www.facebook.de/notesofwhisky

    Producer`s Tasting NotesUNDILUTEDColour: Dark straw

    pleasant cigar like note is present. Fresh with hints of green apples -

    Granny Smith.
    Palate: Subtle phenolic flavour with a heavy sweet peat smoke influence.
    Finish: Long.

    WITH WATER

    Nose: A sweetness is evident, a more delicate peat smoke is present.

    With fragrant and floral notes - reminiscent of freshly cut grass.
    Palate: Hint of smoke with woody elements. Heavy sweet influences - treacle toffee notes and very creamy.
    Finish: Short.
    Body: Medium.
