Benromach Adds Limited Edition Triple Distilled Expression To Its Contrasts Range. Maturation in first-fill bourbon barrels.
Published Date: 25th October 2022
Benromach Distillery in Speyside has launched a new small batch single malt, 'Benromach Triple Distilled', into its 'Contrasts' range.
This limited-edition expression 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.
Bottled at 46% ABV, the non chill-filtered whisky has a long, medium-bodied finish with citrus zest and a hint of soft smoke.
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 Contrasts: Triple Distilled is priced at £49.99. Prices in international markets may vary due to local taxes and import duties.
