Nose
Perfumy. New leather upholstery in a luxury car. Mint imperials for the road.
Palate
Butterscotch sauce. Peaches and cream. Sherry trifle.
Finish
Deliciously rounded. Some garden mint. A hint of peat. Balancing dryness. Gently warming.
Comment
The best Benromach I have tasted. I wonder what she should expect in a few years from the new stillhouse.

Nose
Intense and colourful. A basket of ripe summer fruit (apricot, peach) with a fresh lemony character. Becomes biscuity (shortbread) with water. Pleasant dry oakiness in the back.
Palate
Smooth and velvety. Oak and spices tend to prevail over the fruit.
Finish
Dry, spicy and slightly astringent.
Comment
A vibrant, characterful malt, drier on the palate and finish than expected from the nose.
