Laid down in 2012 before being bottled in 2021, this expression is natural in colour and non-chill filtered. It has been matured exclusively in first-fill sherry hogshead casks which the distillery says results in cinnamon and ginger aromas with rich dark chocolate and stewed red berry flavours, with full finish of peat smoke and sweetness.
Only ever produced in limited runs, Benromach Peat Smoke Sherry Cask Matured (46% ABV) displays high levels of peat smoke at 55ppm. Keith Cruickshank, distillery manager at Benromach, said: “This small batch vintage expression has been created in a style which is deliberately different to the subtle smokiness Benromach is well-known for. This is only the second time we’ve released a heavily sherried peat smoke expression...given the enthusiasm we received from whisky fans we expect this release to be very popular.”
Benromach Peat Smoke Sherry Cask Matured (RRP £49.99) is available at selected retailers worldwide. Stockist information can be found on the brand website
