The Benromach Distillery Company has released a limited-edition single malt whisky, which will join the company’s Wood Finish product line.
Benromach Château Cissac Bordeaux Wood Finish 2010 balances smokiness with rich red wine undertones, as the drink has been matured in First Fill Bourbon barrels before being finished for two years in Château Cissac wine casks.
The whisky boasts flavours of sweet vanilla, creamy milk chocolates, hints of red wine tannins and peat smoke.
Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery manager said: “Our latest Wood Finish is a welcome addition to our ‘Contrasts’ range of single malt Scotch whiskies.
“All our Wood Finishes, including our Château Cissac Bordeaux Wood Finish 2009 which we launched last year, have been really well received by whisky lovers around the world.
“I’m confident that Benromach Château Cissac Bordeaux Wood Finish 2010, with its unique and appealing characteristics, will be appreciated by new and existing Benromach enthusiasts.
“At our distillery in Forres, we’ve always been unafraid to innovate, and we hope those who enjoy our flagship Benromach 10 Years Old will enjoy exploring our different finishes.”
7,789 bottles will be made available through selected retailers, with a recommended retail price of £47.75 in the UK.
