Benromach adds to its Wood Finish portfolio

The Benromach Distillery Company has added Benromach Chateau Cissac Wood Finish 2009 to its Wood Finish portfolio.

This single malt whisky offers a flavour profile that arrives as a result of a final finishing period in wine casks from the 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. 

Benromach distillery manager Keith Cruickshank says: “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.
