Benromach Traditional (no age statement) 40%

Nose: elegant, restrained, faint meadows, a whiff of smoke. Tantalising.
Mouth:  honey, malt, oiliness, cereal/grasses, restrained peat. Just the very faintest hints of more... but it's getting beyond the limits of what my palate can detect.  Doesn't quite live up to the promise of the nose in terms of complexity, and there's a slight harshness, but still— it's interesting and pleasant.
Finish: There's warmth, and honey. Doesn't really linger, but no off notes either.

Actually, this is pretty good. For the price, it's really very good. I'll be coming back to this.
