Benromach Cask Strength Batch #1. Image courtesy Benromach/Gordon & MacPhail.This batch was distilled in 2008 and bottled in 2019, and the nose is fruity with notes of strawberries, raspberries, a nice maltiness, subtle spices, and a hint of straw. The taste is thick, nectar-like, and intense with great fruity notes of fresh berries, peaches, orange peel, and spices that come alive in a second act that lasts through the finish with long-lasting clove, cinnamon, and allspice notes balanced nicely by a lingering fruitiness. Wow! (November, 2019)
