Benromach Sassicaia Wood Finish, 2007/2016, 45%, 3.500 Flaschen, 40,25 GBP (ca. 50.- EUR)

Ich habe bisher weder der Vorgängerflasche, die im Handel noch erhältlich ist, probiert, noch die neue Abfüllung. Ich finde es aber gut, dass Benromach zumindest die Jahreszahlen angibt. Das sind maximal neun Jahre, aber darauf gibt es keine Garantie, so lange dies nicht separat auf dem Label steht.

Offizielle Tasting Notes

  • Color: deep ruby red in colour
  • Aroma: with notes of ripe berries, milk chocolate drops, and hints of ginger and cinnamon, complemented by a subtle sense of smoke.

Ich habe schon ein paar Benromachs probieren dürfen und habe die Distillery auch schon besucht. Hier findet Ihr ein paar meiner Artikel:

(Pressemitteilung, Benromach)


The Benromach Distillery Company Ltd today unveils the latest expression to join their portfolio of Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Benromach Sassicaia Wood Finish.

Benromach SASSICAIA 2016The latest limited edition from the Forres based distillery offers whisky lovers a unique flavour profile, as a result of a final finishing period in Sassicaia wine casks from the renowned Bolgheri wine region.

Distilled in 2007 and initially matured in first fill bourbon barrels, Benromach Sassicaia Wood Finish (45% ABV) is a deep ruby red in colour, with notes of ripe berries, milk chocolate drops, and hints of ginger and cinnamon, complemented by a subtle sense of smoke.

The new release 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 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.

Originally built in 1898, Benromach Distillery was revived when leading whisky specialists Gordon & MacPhail purchased it in 1993. The distillery was extensively re-equipped over a five-year period to create a Speyside single malt whisky in a classic pre 1960s style.

Benromach Sassicaia Wood Finish will be available to purchase from specialist whisky retailers at an RRP of £40.25 in the UK, with only 3,500 bottles released for sale worldwide. Prices may vary in overseas markets due to local taxes and duty.
