A brand new release from Benromach.  The Benromach 2002 Predro Ximinez shows again that Benromach is a force to be reckoned with.  This Benromach was distilled in 2002 and bottled in September 2010. It spent most of its life in a Bourbon cask and was then finished for 30 months in Pedro Ximenez casks.  This expression is limited to 1800 bottles and its first rate.

My tasting notes

Nose: It has a fruity toffee nose with that sherry spiciness which hints of smoke. There's hints of peach skins and orange peel and a notes of menthol and tar in the background.

Taste: Sweet, rich and creamy. Singed orange peel. Reminiscent of an Old Fashioned where the orange peel has been flamed.

Finish: Long spicy and warming.
