Benromach Peat Smoke
Batch 4 (35ppm)Distilled 2002, Strength 46%
At Benromach small batches of whisky have been produced using the finest malted barley, dried using high levels of peat smoke. Distilled from malted barley with a phenol level of 35ppm this fourth batch of Benromach Peat Smoke has been matured in Refill American Hogsheads for many years. The resultant Single Malt is seriously smoky yet it retains the elegance and fruitiness of Benromach.
