The Benromach Distillery Company Ltd has added to its Wood Finish portfolio with the Benromach Chateau Cissac Wood Finish 2009.
This single malt whisky offers a unique flavour profile as a result of a final finishing period in hand-selected wine casks from the distinguished French wine region of Haut-Médoc near Bordeaux.
The Benromach Chateau Cissac (ABV 45%) was finished in first fill Chateau Cissac casks for 25 months after being filled into first fill Bourbon, resulting in an initial peppery taste with sweet vanilla and creamy milk chocolates notes and hints of red wine tannins and lingering peat smoke.
Benromach Distillery Manager Keith Cruickshank said: “Our latest Wood Finish expression is a welcome addition to our growing family of Speyside single malt whiskies. Our previous wood finish expressions, including Benromach Sassicaia and Benromach Hermitage, have proved to be very popular and we are looking forward to hearing what whisky lovers think of this Chateau Cissac. It certainly has plenty of character so I’m sure this new single malt will be appreciated by new and existing Benromach fans around the world.
“Those who enjoy our flagship 10 Years Old will enjoy the chance to experience Benromach in a different way. The maturation in wine casks from the distinguished region creates a distinct flavour in the whisky and allows a truly unique character to develop.”
This new Benromach Wood Finish is available to purchase at specialist whisky retailers with an RRP of £39.75. Prices may vary in export markets because of duty and import taxes.
