The Benromach Peat Smoke single malt is back once again, and this time, it's peatier! The 2004 bottling sat at 53ppm, whereas this 2005 bottling weighs in at a hefty 67ppm. What's more, it was matured in first-fill bourbon barrels. If you're looking for a smoky Speysider, this ought to fit the bill rather nicely.
Nose: Summer BBQ smoke, citrus, apricot and hints cigar box.
Palate: Very warm with smoky, peppery goodness. Oranges and lemons.
Finish: Lasting embers that take a good while to finally fade away.
Overall: All you could ask for in a peated Benromach.

This one is right up there with my favourites (all the Ardbegs and Laphroaigs and Lagavulin) ...... if not a short nose in front. How can Benromach bring such a subtle roundness to so much peaty smokiness? On the one hand I can't believe M.O.M are sold out..... but then again I can.Anyone who says they're not fond of peaty smokey whisky hasn't tried this one. It's a gem. Let's hope there's plenty more on the way!

As an Islay fan, I tend not to seek out a peated Speyside too often, but having just nabbed a 100 mL taster of this Benromach, I'm impressed. A tad sweet for my palate, but very nicely balanced overall with a pleasing orangey presence. An easy drinker; nicely warming.

I fully agree with the tasting notes from masterofmalt.Very, very deilicious dram worth every penny.The smoke is very aromatic and sweet, reminds me of Ardbeg Uigeadail.Just buy it.My rating takes price into account.
