Bordeaux finish: The single malt spent 25 months in Château Cissac casks

The single malt whisky was initially matured in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks before spending 25 months in first-fill ex-Château Cissac casks, sourced from Bordeaux’s Haut-Médoc wine region.

Bottled at 45% abv and available from specialist whisky retailers for around £39.75, Benromach Château Cissac 2009 is said to have an ‘initial peppery taste, with sweet vanilla and creamy milk chocolate notes, and hints of red wine tannins and lingering peat smoke’.

‘Our previous wood finish expressions, including Benromach Sassicaia and Benromach Hermitage, have proved to be very popular, and we are looking forward to hearing what whisky lovers think of this Château Cissac,’ said Keith Cruickshank, Benromach distillery manager.

Benromach, owned by independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail since 1993, released its first triple-distilled single malt whisky earlier this month.
