Benromach 2002 KWM Bourbon Cask 875

Benromach 2002 KWM Bourbon Cask 875

This item is archived.

Our 5th KWM exclusive Benromach cask (3rd in the current packaging) was bottled just shy of its 20th birthday, having matured in a single first-fill ex-Bourbon Barrel. This whisky is bright, creamy, tropical, and decadent with clean smoke. It is the closest thing we've ever tasted to the legendary twenty-something Broras... Only 196 bottles were filled at 56.2%.

700ml ml
Region:Scotland > Speyside

Andrew's Tasting Note Coming Soon

Nose: decadent, fruity, and waxy, with clean smoke; honeycomb, beeswax, and clotted cream; macadamia nuts and toasted almonds; then the tropical fruits creep in... pineapple, mango, and canteloupe; tarte tatin, juicy orange and citrus too; sugar, spice, and all things nice... subtle clean wood smoke.

Palate: big, decadent, and fruity with waxy honey infused with sandalwood; sooooo much honey... creamed heather honey, beeswax, and honeycomb; the malt makes a surprising appearance, clinging to the clean wood smoke; candied ginger and warm oak spices develop as the fruits come into full bloom: mango, papaya, baked apples, grilled pineapple, and orange Starbursts; late chocolate and vanilla.

Finish: it keeps going, and going, and going.... warming, fruity, toasty and spicy with waxy tones and sandalwood smoke.

Comment: Wow... simply, wow; is Benromach the new Brora? I could pad this out with more praise and fluff, but this whisky is simply stunning, it speaks for itself... honeyed, waxy, tropical, and elegantly smoked!

Producer Tasting Note

"Rich tropical fruit aromas lead to baked apple and black pepper. Sweet honey and orange zest flavours give way to soft smoke."
