Some nice elements but lacks depth and complexity.
Highland peat, smoky but not peaty, campfire with notes of burning wood. Next the malt appears, typical Benromach style. Lastly here comes the wine cask, red grapes, red berries, touch of sugary sweetness.
Noses thin and watery, not one of those sticky dense noses.
With time the nose picks up pepper and spice.
Thin on the body. Plenty of sweetness, grape and red fruit notes, malty notes making an appearance. An ashy note arrives along with some sulphur notes. There's some peppery notes in the back as well.
Lacking a little body and depth though.
With time the malt and spice pick up in strength and the sulphur notes become ever more prominent.
Finish is quite long, a little bitter oak, some lasting smoke and some sulphur.
