Benromach's Contrasts Range features whiskies designed as a twist on the delicately smoky profile of brand’s core range, with other releases including Contrasts Triple Distilled and Contrasts Double Matured Bordeaux Wine Cask.

Benromach Contrasts Virgin Oak, is said to deliver notes of dried banana, lemon and vanilla fudge on the nose, followed by notes of Seville orange zest, butterscotch and smooth smoke on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Keith Cruickshank, Distillery Manager at Benromach, said: “Every drop of this single malt whisky is made by hand using the sharpened senses of our distillers who put their heart and soul into creating our whisky. Having matured for ten years in Virgin American Oak casks, the result is liquid that is packed with fruity aromas from the offset, followed by zesty citrus and sweet butterscotch flavours. It’s a cracking dram. With a limited number of bottles available for purchase, this is the perfect dram for whisky enthusiasts looking to explore something a bit different.”

Benromach Contrasts Virgin Oak, is now available from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £60.00.
