Insider knowledge: Benromach Origins 2005 - Batch 5 (Golden Promise) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Benromach Origins 2005 - Batch 5 (Golden Promise) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Smoky and creamy apple crumble, vanilla and tomato vine.
Palate: Orchid fruits and a little damp grass, wood smoke nearby.
Finish: Smoky barley lingers.
Overall: A great Benromach made from a single variety of barley.
I've tried this whisky yesterday and I found there is no any sherry influence at all.Is a bourbon barrel...all those who likes whisky matured in sherry will be disappointed.
