Benromach Organic 2011 (Bottled 2019), 43%

Price: $70 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

First released in 2006, this expression was distilled from organically certified barley and aged in virgin oak casks. Spicy new oak and subtle smoke on the nose, with white pepper, bananas, cereal, and cut grass. The palate is oily, with more pepper, hazelnuts dipped in honey, and tropical fruits. Vanilla and toffee on the slowly drying finish.
