New 2016 bottling, bottled at 45% from Gordon & MacPhail's Picturesque Benromach Distillery. Since G&M took over they have done a marvellous job of bringing this distillery back to life, and they've been releasing some fabulous new whiskies. This Contrast Collection finish, was distilled in 2005 and matured in "oak casks that once nurtured wine from the Hermitage Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée, in the northern Rhône region of France, famed for the Syrah grape."
Distiller’sTasting Notes: “Pour yourself a dram... as the whisky slips into your glass, observe its rich ruby red colour imparted by oak casks that once nurtured wine from the Hermitage Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée, in the northern Rhône region of France, famed for the Syrah grape. Lift your glass and take in the AROMA WITHOUT WATER. Swirl your dram around and enjoy those scents of summer... sweet summer fruits, refreshing red apples, and zesty lemon and lime. A touch of vanilla emerges and cinnamon notes develop, underlined by a touch of peat smoke and a peppermint edge. Now take a sip. The TASTE WITHOUT WATER is sweet and bursting with intense fruit... succulent dark cherry and orange, sharper kiwi and gooseberry... and these combine wonderfully with creamy milk chocolate and a gentle smoky edge. Now enjoy the AROMA WITH WATER… nose your dram and you may detect lime and grapefruit at first, with hints of delicious toasted malt and sweet vanilla with eucalyptus notes in the background. Take a sip and savour the TASTE WITH WATER… at first it’s gently spicy, quickly followed by sweet raspberry and tangerine flavours, and hints of almonds complementing the underlying peat smoke edge. The finish is gloriously long and fruity with a hint of smoke.”
