Benromach Sassicaia Wood Finish Single Malt 700ml (Scotland)
The Sassicaia-wood-finished single malt from the Benromach distillery spends the first portion of its maturation in first-fill bourbon barrels, and is then allowed to finish for 28 months casks which previously held Sassicaia wine from Tuscany.
Nose: Fresh strawberries and Alpine herbs. A touch of chocolate.
Palate: Creamy and sweet with caramel and treacle, joined by another burst of summer berries.
Finish: Hints of black pepper and charred oak.
