Benromach Tokaji Finish, 45%

Price: $50 Issue: Spring 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

A very peculiar whisky. It's interesting in some respects, with the thick, sweet Hungarian dessert wine fighting with damp peat smoke for attention. But it tastes a little disjointed, and a bit too youthful. With a few more years aging (before finishing in the Tokaji wine), the flavors should integrate and mature better. But as it is, this whisky is still “work in progress.”
