Benromach Distillery has added Benromach Sassicaia 2007 Wood Finish to its Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky portfolio.

The new limited edition is from the Forres based distillery. It offers a unique flavour profile due to final finishing period in Sassicaia wine casks from the renowned Bolgheri wine region.

Distilled in 2007, this new release with 45% ABV follows previous special edition Wood Finishes Benromach Hermitage 2005, Benromach Sassicaia 2006 and Château Cissac 2006.

Benromach Distillery manager Keith Cruickshank said: "Here at Benromach we have an esteemed portfolio of single malt whisky.

"Our Wood Finish expressions allow us the opportunity to provide our customers with a special malt which is full of character, thanks to the final maturation period in casks from distinguished wine regions.

"The final finishing period in Sassicaia wine casks allows for an exceptional flavour profile to develop, full of summer fruits and soft spice.

"Fans of our Benromach 10 Years Old and Benromach 15 Years Old, which display the classic character of pre-1960’s Speyside single malt, will enjoy the chance to experience our whisky in a different way."

Benromach Distillery started in 1898, and was revived in 1993, when it was taken over by Gordon & MacPhail.

It took over five years for Gordon & MacPhail to completely revive Benromach Distillery to create a Speyside single malt whisky in a classic pre 1960s style.
