This beautiful Benromach Wood Finish is matured in First Fill Bourbon casks and is finished for 25 months in hand-selected casks from the illustrious Château Cissac within the Appellation Haut-Médoc Contrôlée in South-western France.

The influence of the Château Cissac casks is immediately apparent on the nose, with melon notes, red apples, delicate and zesty orange peel and dark chocolate. There’s also an underlying floral note and a faint charred oak edge, character typical of the distillery. It’s slightly peppery on the palate with sweet vanilla, creamy milk chocolate.  Satisfying hints of red wine tannins emerge, complementing a lingering peat smoke. With a few drops of water there is a spiciness that develops alongside grapefruit and orange peel. More intense notes of bonfire embers develop into the finish with Brazil nuts and cocoa flavours.
