A 2011 vinage Benromach, released as part of the Wood Finish bottling series. The single malt was aged initially in first-fill bourbon barrels, and was then finished for just under two years in Sassicaia wine casks from Bolgheri in Tuscany, Italy. It was bottled in 2019 at 45% ABV and this expression never fails to impress, full of summer fruit and just a wisp of smoke.
Nose: Spiced and stewed fruits, just a hint of smoke and buttery pastries.
Palate: Fresh and vibrant summer fruits, orange peel, oak spice and creamy milk chocolate.
Finish: Gentle smoke lingers on the finish alongside a slight tannic note and berry sweetness.
