Peaty Speyside is becoming more popular everyday. After Glenlivet Nadurra and some other expressions of other whiskies, I guess we have to expect more of them. Some of those whiskies have started to come to Turkey and one of them is Benromach Peat Smoke.
By giving the morning with the name, “Peat Smoke” has a peat amount of 67 ppm. We tasted it on one of the Whisky Or Whisey? classes. The very first smell gives you the suggestion that it is gonna be a looong and peaaty one. However, after some air, orange and exotic fruits appears and takes your brain out. On the palate blood orange, grapefruit zest and peat are successfully put together. This harmony is just one of the reasons why I loved this whisky.
The finish is pleasent, warm adn long. Just the thing we need for the snowy İstanbul on this January day.
