Benromach er kommet med en ny wood finish aftapning. Denne gang har de valgt at afslutte denne whisky på franske vin fade fra Haut-Médoc området nær Bordeaux.
The Benromach Chateau Cissac (ABV 45%) er afsluttet på first fill Chateau Cissac casks fchateau cissac 2017 i 25 måneder efter at have ligget på first fill Bourbon.
Benromach Distillery Manager Keith Cruickshank udtaler: “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 around 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."
The fabulous influence of the Château Cissac casks will be immediately apparent, with melon notes, red apples, delicate and zesty orange peel and dark chocolate. There’s also an underlying floral note and a delightful charred oak edge...
It’s slightly peppery on the palate with sweet vanilla, creamy milk chocolate... there’s even refreshing lemon and limeade flavours with a nod and a wink towards the effervescent. Satisfying hints of red wine tannins emerge, complementing a lingering peat smoke.
There are hints of pressed green apple and pear... and delicate oak aromas develop, complemented by the lingering peppermint.
At first you’ll sense some spiciness and cracked black pepper. A slight bitterness develops, with grapefruit and orange peel. Now you may detect deeper hints of bonfire embers, complemented by Brazil nuts and gorgeous cocoa flavours.
Der kommer i alt 4200 flasker af denne aftapning til en pris af ca. £39.75
