Distilled from richly peated barley (42 PPM) and matured solely in ex-bourbon barrels for over 10 years, this is the newest release from Benromach's 'Contrasts' series. The peat smoke is quite mild and gentle to start, joined by a rounded and sweet vanilla flavour, ranging from custard to French vanilla ice-cream, offset with citrus. There is an aromatic toasted coconut quality, bringing contrast against the smoky flavour of bonfire embers, with the addition of spice-cupboard and dried apricot tartness to finish.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Very rich smoke with fragrant vanilla and light citrus zest. Hints of apples develop accompanied by white chocolate.

Palate: Smooth with toasted oak, honey and sweet ripe fruit. Butterscotch and marshmallow flavours lead to a lemon sherbet all alongside sweet smoke.
Finish: Mouth-coating sweetness and bonfire embers.
