Benromach frigiver Sassicaia 2007 Wood Finish

Det er ikke meget mere end et halvt år siden at Benromach lancerede Hermitage 2005 og Sassicaia 2006, men nu er de allerede klar med den næste Sassicaia Wood Finish.

Benromach Sassicaia WoodBenromach Sassicaia 2007 Wood Finish har som navnet antydet fået en afslutning på tidligere Sassicaia vinfade fra Bolgheri i Italien. Inden da har den ligget på first-fill bourbonfade.

Den er destilleret i 2007 og dermed 8-9 år gammel. Den er tappet ved 45% og den er naturligvis hverken koldfiltreret eller farvet med E150a.

Officielle smagsnoter fra destilleriet:

Nose: The nose is brimming with luscious red berries and hints of ginger and cinnamon, complemented by a subtle sense of smoke. With water you notice the nose opening out. It’s fresh as a breeze with subtle herbs and summer fruits.

Palate: The initial peppery palate gives way to a ripe fruit bowl of flavour. Strawberries, raspberries, orange zest and you can detect gorgeous milk chocolate drops, too. With water it’s peppery with a sweet toffee note followed by a slight saltiness and a subtle smoky edge.

Keith Cruickshank, Distillery Manager hos Benromcah udtaler:

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 Benromach 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.

Der er lavet 3.500 flasker af Benromach Sassicaia 2007 Wood Finish. Den er tilgængelig nu og prisen ligger på £40 per flaske i Storbritannien, så vi lander nok omkring 450 kroner herhjemme.
