Benromach Distillery adds limited-edition whisky to its Contrasts range

Benromach Distillery has launched the latest addition to its Contrasts range — a 10-year-old limited-edition, single malt whisky matured in American new oak casks.

The Contrasts range whiskies have been designed as a twist on the smoky profile of brand’s core range, with other releases including Contrasts Triple Distilled and Contrasts Double Matured Bordeaux Wine Cask.

The unseasoned casks featured in this release were handmade by expert coopers in Speyside, then gently charred before being filled with Benromach’s signature spirit. Tasting notes supplied by Benromach Distillery say this process gives the whisky notes of orange zest and butterscotch.

Keith Cruickshank, distillery manager at Benromach, said: “Every drop of this single malt whisky is made by hand using the sharpened senses of our distillers who put their heart and soul into creating our whisky. Having matured for ten years in Virgin American Oak casks, the result is liquid that is packed with fruity aromas from the offset, followed by zesty citrus and sweet butterscotch flavours. It’s a cracking dram.

“With a limited number of bottles available for purchase, this is the perfect dram for whisky enthusiasts looking to explore something a bit different.”

Further information on Benromach Contrasts Virgin Oak (RRP £60, ABV 46%) can be found through Benromach’s website.
