I prefer the "hermitage" in comparison to the other expressions of the wood finish series!

Color
Gin clear
Nose

Warm and subtle barbecue smoke, signature Benromach. Aromas of red berries, cherry candy cane, cotton candy and orange lemonade. A hint of sugar. Hovering on the border of becoming too sweet, but staying just on the right side.

Taste

Spicy stuff, with a big pinch of pepper and a whiff of cloves. Ginger too. There's some soft red fruits like strawberries and cranberries. As well subtle notes of smoke and peat.

Finish

Short to medium, with a hint of peat transforming into mellow red fruit.

Comments

Very similar to the previous batch, which might've had a bit richer palate, if I remember correctly.
