Benromach unveils Peat Smoke Sherry Cask Matured

The distillery has wed heavily peated barley with sherry casks for limited release
The release of the Benromach Peat Smoke Sherry Cask Matured whisky has been announced, from the Benromach Distillery Company. The expression is 59.9% ABV and was crafted using peated Scottish barley and only 6,500 bottles are available from 8 March 2019.

Keith Cruickshank, Benromach distillery manager, said: “This is the first time Benromach has released a Sherried Peat Smoke expression and we’re very proud of its unique flavour profile. This expression perfectly balances the smokiness with the sweeter Sherry notes, giving rise to a spectacularly rich and intense dram.

“At Benromach, we handcraft all our whiskies, which allows us the flexibility to experiment with different distilling and maturation techniques. Our small batch releases have enjoyed considerable success in the past and for those that enjoy Benromach’s classic style with a wisp of smoke, we’re confident that this new expression will be particularly popular.’’

Benromach Peat Smoke Sherry Cask Matured has a recommended retail price (RRP) of €74.99 (£64.99). Prices in local markets will vary depending on local taxes and duty.
