Benromach Peat Smoke Sherry Cask Matured was distilled in 2010 and made with heavily-peated malted barley. The single malt matured in first-fill sherry hogsheads until it was bottled in 2018 at 59.9% ABV. This bottling marks the first time the brand has released a sherried peat smoke whisky. Only 6500 bottles of this limited edition were created. Available as of March 2019 in select markets.

Tasting Notes

"Very enticing indeed, as there are lots of dry sherry notes, with a good amount of red fruits and cherry syrup. Then there's honey-glazed, meaty, barbecue-esque peat smoke that beautifully cuts through. The palate is unmistakably Benromach, but sort of on steroids. The earthy peat and furniture polish work great with the dried fruit. Syrupy and oily. A real treat."
