The Benromach Distillery Company, has today announced the launch of a new vintage cask strength expression, as part of its Classic Range of single malt Scotch whiskies.

Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 - Batch 1 (57.9% ABV) which is limited to 5,500 bottles, was matured in first-fill Sherry and Bourbon casks.

Distilled and laid down to mature in 2008 before being bottled in 2019, Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 - Batch 1, is said to have notes of cracked black pepper, fruits and milk chocolate, with a delicate smoky edge on the palate.

This latest release from the Speyside based distillery, will replace the Benromach 100° Proof expression in its Classic Range. The new expression will provide single malt Scotch whisky fans with subtle variations on the flavour profile of Benromach 100° Proof, with small strength and natural colour variations reflecting different batches.

Commenting on the news, Keith Cruickshank, Benromach Distillery Manager, said: “By offering the opportunity to own and enjoy batch releases, we are able to further showcase the expertise of our distilling team while determining the right time to bottle each batch  to take full advantage of the remarkable single malt whiskies we produce. We believe this expression will allow Benromach drinkers to understand more about the provenance of the whisky they are drinking.”

He went onto say: “Every whisky we release has been carefully handcrafted by our close-knit team of distillers. While retaining the overall flavours that Benromach consumers have enjoyed in Benromach 100° Proof, the new Cask Strength Vintage release will differ subtly in both strength and flavour profile, reflecting the specific casks chosen from the vintage year.”

Benromach Cask Strength Vintage 2008 - Batch 1, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £59.95.
