Benromach Peat Smoke 2006 - Bottled 2015
A 2006 vintage release of Benromach Peat Smoke, peated to 62 PPM (parts per million). Matured in first fill bourbon barrels from 2006 until 2015 and bottled at 46% vol. A more intense level of smoke compared to the subtle notes in which you get from the 10 year old release, here's what we thought when we recently opened a bottle.
