The latest addition to Benromach Distillery’s 'wood finish portfolio' has been unveiled, with the launch of the limited-edition Benromach Château Cissac Bordeaux Wood Finish 2010.
The whisky has been matured in first fill Bourbon barrels. This expression is then finished for just over two years in Château Cissac wine casks, from the French wine region of Haut-Médoc, near Bordeaux.
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.”
A limited release of 7,789 bottles will be made available for sale through specialist whisky retailers, with a recommended retail price of £47.75 in the UK. Prices may vary in international markets because of duty and import taxes.
