New wood finishes from Benromach

Benromach WF Sassicaia 2006 PackShot

The Benromach Distillery Company Ltd has released two new limited edition Benromach Wood Finishes: Sassicaia and Hermitage.

These expressions offer a unique flavour profile as a result of a final finishing period in hand-selected wine casks from the distinguished wine regions of the northern Rhône, Haut-Médoc, near Bordeaux, and Bolgheri in Tuscany.

Benromach Distillery Manager, Keith Cruickshank said, “We are delighted to announce the release of Benromach Sassicaia and Benromach Hermitage, the latest whiskies in our exceptional range of classic Speyside single malts. Whisky lovers who enjoy our flagship 10 Years Old and our new 15 Years Old, both of which display the classic Benromach flavour profile, will enjoy the chance to experience Benromach in a different way. The maturation in wine casks from distinguished regions creates a distinct flavour in the whisky and allows a truly unique character to develop.

“With notes of succulent berries, vanilla and cinnamon, Sassicaia and Hermitage are the perfect winter warmers for whisky fans and beginners alike.”


The new releases from Benromach follow limited edition Wood Finish expressions Château Cissac and Hermitage 2004, which were released in 2014.
