Tasting Notes:

  • Nose: Woodsmoke (smoldering campfire), vanilla, and light oak. Somewhat anemic, and very dry.
  • Palate: Black pepper and a lot more smoldering campfire.
  • Finish: A fading, slightly bitter, reprise of the vanilla-and-smoke motif.
  • With Water: A few drops of water add some floral notes – like white tea – which are quickly voided by the smokiness.
Description

Benromach Peat Smoke

A wonderfully fruity and SERIOUSLY SMOKY single malt, we only produce very small batches of this GORGEOUS Speyside whisky that’s big on unique flavour.

Pour yourself a dram of this seriously smoky single malt whisky… we only produce very small batches of this unique Benromach Speyside whisky, so you’re one of the few people who are able to enjoy it.

The finest Scottish barley is malted with high levels of peat smoke at 67ppm (parts per million: the phenol level, to those in the know). Take in the AROMA WITHOUT WATER… sweet vanilla, honey and cured meat aromas, hints of apricot and lemon combining with a beautiful subtle tobacco note. Dive in and enjoy the TASTE WITHOUT WATER. There’s cracked pepper with sweet strawberry and orange flavours, a delicate hint of aniseed… combined with a lingering edge of bonfire embers.

Now enjoy the AROMA WITH WATER… the delicate smokiness complements lemon, honey and vanilla aromas with sweet hints of apricot and sugared almonds developing on the tongue. Lift it to your lips and savour the TASTE WITH WATER. Slow cooked apple, pear and tangy grapefruit give way to a trace of cocoa powder and an absolutely gorgeous edge of lingering cigars. It’s a wonderfully fruity and smoky single malt whisky. What aromas and tastes do you sense? Tell us what you think.

Only produced in small batches at Benromach distillery in Speyside, Peat Smoke is one of the few peated whiskies made in the region. Peated to 67ppm, this expression is bottled at 46% abv. The nose is sweet with vanilla, honey and fruits atop a subtle tobacco note. The palate brings cracked pepper and more sweet fruits, together with bonfire embers. The finish has cigar leaf and almonds lingering.
