The Forres based, Benromach Distillery Company, has today announced the launch of a new addition to its Wood Finish portfolio.

Benromach Chateau Cissac – 2009 Vintage (45% ABV) was initially matured in first fill bourbon barrels, before being finished for 25 months in hand selected Chateau Cissac casks, from the French wine region of Haut-M├ędoc near Bordeaux.

This latest addition to the brands Wood Finish portfolio, is said to deliver notes on the palate of pepper, sweet vanilla, creamy milk chocolates, red wine tannins and lingering peat smoke.

Commenting on the launch, Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery Manager, said: “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.”

He went onto say: “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.”

Limited to 4,200 bottles, Benromach Chateau Cissac – 2009 Vintage, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £39.75.
