Benromach, Sassicaia Wood Finish, 70cl
Lovingly nurtured in Sassicaia wine casks, this limited edition single malt wood finish is brimming with luscious fruitiness and a subtle smoky edge.
Pour yourself a good dram and notice the stunning deep ruby red colour, imparted by the former Sassicaia wine casks from Bolgheri. Now take a few small inhalations and take in the the nose which is brimming with luscious red berries and hints of ginger and cinnamon, complemented by a subtle sense of smoke. The initial peppery palate gives way to a ripe fruit bowl of flavours… strawberries, raspberries, orange zest… and you can detect gorgeous milk chocolate drops, too.
