Benromach, 21YO (700ml)
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Matured in the finest hand-selected first-fill oak casks, Benromach's TWENTY ONE YEAR OLD single malt delivers sweet Sherry aromas. Subtle spice, Seville orange and raspberry follow with a soft smoky finish.
MATURATION: a mix of first fill ex-Bourbon and first fill ex-Sherry casks were used to create this rich, lightly smokey single malt.
Aromas: Sweet Sherry aromas with underlying citrus, ginger and oak notes, accompanied by a touch of smoke.
Palate: Sweet initially with cracked black pepper, Seville orange and raspberry flavours lead to baked apple and subtle spice.
Finish: Charred oak and soft smoke.
Jim Murray's Whisky Bible - 91.5 Points "An entirely different, indeed, lost style of malt from the old, now gone big stills. The result is an airier whisky that has embraced such good age with a degree of panache and grace."

About the Distillery
Benromach is a traditional Speyside distillery owned by a family of whisky-lovers intent on making single malt the right way with true character. A handful of distillers relying entirely on expertise and senses to make the finest handmade whisky; Speyside single malt matured exclusively in first-fill casks, with a subtly smoky character along with their renowned Red Door Gin. Recalling the Speyside tradition of topping up fires with cuts of peat when coal ran low, the Scottish barley is grown locally and malted with a little peat smoke to Benromach's exact specifications before being ground into grist in their 120 year-old four-roller Boby Mill. They specify a lightly peated barley, giving the whiskies their distinctive Speyside character.
