Part of Benromach's Contrasts Range, this single malt was distilled in 2007, matured in First Fill Ex-Bourbon before finishing in Sassicaia wine casks from Bolgheri in Tuscany. It has been bottled at 45%. Just 3,500 bottles released. No more than 180 have come to Canada!
Distiller's Tasting Note: "Pour yourself a good dram and notice the stunning deep ruby red colour, imparted by the former Sassicaia wine casks from Bolgheri. Now take a few small inhalations and take in the AROMA WITHOUT WATER… the nose is brimming with luscious red berries and hints of ginger and cinnamon, complemented by a subtle sense of smoke. Now sip and enjoy the TASTE WITHOUT WATER. The initial peppery palate gives way to a ripe fruit bowl of flavours… strawberries, raspberries, orange zest… and you can detect gorgeous milk chocolate drops, too. Add a little water for the AROMA WITH WATER, noticing the nose opening out… it’s fresh as a breeze with subtle herbs and summer fruits. Now sip it, roll the whisky around your palate and enjoy the full TASTE WITH WATER, peppery with a sweet toffee note followed by a slight saltiness and a subtle smoky edge."
