Benromach - Sassicaia 2007
Sweet, fruity and creamy nose with notes of fudge, warm red apples, cinnamon, vanilla, raisins, oranges, banana, raspberry, white chocolate, cereal, honey, brown sugar candy, pink grapefruit, lemon drops, redcurrant and dark wheat freshly backed bread...
Palate is just like the nose sweet and fruity and has a bit of a leather feeling on the middle length finish. It is a bit heavier on the palate. The nose was more fruity and on the palate I am getting more heavy floral notes mixed with honey, cherries and dates.
Feels a bit more like wood notes on the palate then the cereal and grain notes from the nose. Lovely dram, but after the nose I expected more like that on the palate also. Scoring it an 7 out of 10, due to not finding it fully balanced. Thanks Benromach for sharing a sample, very interesting dram!
