Benromach Sassicaia Wood Finish 2009
Benromach // Speyside, Scotland
Distilled in 2009, this release follows the success of the 2007 release of their Sassicaia Finish Single Malt. This Speyside single malt whisky first spends its time aging in first-fill bourbon barrels before being transferred to barrels which previously held the well regarded Tuscan red wine. The whisky was bottled in 2017 at 45% ABV and 8000 bottles will be available for this release, over twice the amount for their first release.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
