Benromach Sassicaia Wood Finish
Knowing that i like sweet Port finished whiskies my friend Adrian (@mynameisgone) from the Whisky Chronicle blog sent me a sample of this Benromach Sassicaia.
Distilled in 2005 and bottled 2012 this was finised for 29 months in Sassicaia wood giving it a real jammy fruity flavour which works really well, this is a definite fruity lovely dram
Sold out everywhere i look this one looks to be an auction purchase to get a bottle now.
Damson jam and sweet stewed Bramley apples and fig rolls with a sprinkling of cinnamon and freshly rolled doughy bread rolls and malt loaf with some talcum powder and a hint of gentle chimney smoke.
Sweet soft gentle stewed apples and creamy butterscotch and vanilla cream with raisins hiding behind some soft sweet plum with a hint of juicy fruit chewing gum
Hints of cinnamon crunch and chewing gum
