Insider knowledge: Benromach Origins 1999 - Batch 1 whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Benromach Origins 1999 - Batch 1 whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Sherry, buttery notes of malt, Irish soda bread.
Palate: Sultanas, malt. Peat with a development of Muscovado, trailing smoke with vanilla spice.
Finish: Retains that Muscovado with juicy abandon.
too sherried, intensity without length, bitter. Sorry guys- this one's for cooking with.
