This is 2006 edition of the popular Benromach Peat Smoke, which this time was peated to 62PPM, just a touch lower than the previous year’s offering. It was matured from 2006 to 2015 in first fill bourbon barrels and bottled at 46% ABV. The Peat Smoke continues to be an enjoyable dram, marrying elegant but powerful peat wafts with rich, fruity malt and a touch of earthy tobacco.
Absolutely lovely peated Speyside. It’s a must buy. Ralfy gave it high marks for the 2005 ones too!
With a level of 62ppm, this is seriously smoky with notes of liquorice, orange (without water) or grapefruit (with water).
Overall: All you could ask for in a peated Benromach.
