The Benromach Distillery, has announced the launch of a new expression from its Contrasts range.

Benromach Triple Distilled (46% ABV) is a 10 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky, which has been triple distilled and matured in first-fill bourbon barrels.

This limited-edition expression from the Speyside based distillery, was created in a style which is deliberately different in character to its signature 10 Year Old single malt. For this unique release, the spirit has been triple distilled, passing through the wash still and then twice through the spirit still, giving a lighter and fruiter style of spirit that complements its maturation in first-fill bourbon barrels.

Benromach Triple Distilled, is said to deliver notes of vibrant tropical fruits, malt biscuit, vanilla pod and toasted oak on the nose. Followed by notes of ripe banana, poached pear, green apple and sweet honey on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Keith Cruickshank, Distillery Manager at Benromach, said: “We triple-distilled a small batch of this spirit in 2011 and after a little more than a decade, we are ready to share it. Benromach Triple Distilled retains our customary, subtle smokiness but the extra distillation, combined with a bourbon cask delivers a slightly sweeter single malt with tropical fruit notes such as pineapple, banana, and coconut. And like all of our whiskies, our small team of distillers created this expression by hand to produce a malt with genuine character.”

Benromach Triple Distilled, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for £49.99.
