Matured in first fill oak Bourbon barrels, this rather smoky style of Benromach is malted with high levels of peat smoke at 67ppm (parts per million: the phenol level) and only produced in small batches. 

Sweet vanilla, honey and cured meat aromas along with hints of apricot and lemon that combine with a subtle tobacco note. On the palate there’s cracked pepper with sweet strawberry and orange flavours, a delicate hint of aniseed combined with a lingering edge of bonfire embers. With a dash of water slow cooked apple, pear and tangy grapefruit notes give way to a trace of cocoa powder and an absolutely gorgeous edge of lingering cigars. It’s a wonderfully fruity and smoky single malt whisky.
