Benromach 10 Year Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Although this Scotch is peated like Islays, the smoke tastes more like campfire BBQ than rubber tires. The sweet flavors (vanilla, golden fruits, caramel) and the smoke mingle well, allowing some of the nuttiness from the sherry to waft through without being overpowering. This is one of those whiskies that stimulates the palate and actually makes one hungry for food. Would be an insanely delicious pairing with pastrami or smokey hams.
