Limited to 6,500 bottles, this latest release from the Speyside based distillery, is said to deliver notes of honey cured meats and orange marmalade on the nose. Followed by notes of white pepper, dried fruits, ginger and bonfire embers on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery Manager, said: “This is the first time Benromach has released a Sherried Peat Smoke expression and we’re very proud of its unique flavour profile. This expression perfectly balances the smokiness with the sweeter Sherry notes, giving rise to a spectacularly rich and intense dram.”
He went onto say: “At Benromach, we handcraft all our whiskies which allows us the flexibility to experiment with different distilling and maturation techniques. Our small batch releases have enjoyed considerable success in the past and for those that enjoy Benromach’s classic style with a wisp of smoke, we’re confident that this new expression will be particularly popular.’’
Benromach Peat Smoke Sherry Cask Matured, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £64.99.
