Benromach Debuts Triple Distilled Scotch Whisky - The Whiskey Wash

Benromach Debuts Triple Distilled Scotch Whisky

By Nino Marchetti / September 18, 2017

The Benromach distillery has turned to the distillation process itself to create something a little different for its next release. It has unveiled a new Scotch that’s been triple distilled before being aged some eight years.

The new Benromach Triple Distilled single malt, according to those behind it, is first distilled in a wash still before receiving two further distillations in a spirit still. The first vintage of this offering, 2009, was then put to rest in first fill bourbon barrels before being bottled at 50% ABV.

“The launch of our Benromach Triple Distilled single malt marks an exciting time for us here at the distillery as we continue to expand our family of Speyside single malt whiskies,” said Benromach distillery manager Keith Cruickshank in a prepared statement. “We handcraft all our whiskies, giving us flexibility to experiment with different distilling and maturation techniques and our new Benromach Triple Distilled is testament to this.

Plans call for Benromach Triple Distilled to be available in limited amounts – 1,300 cases worth – in the UK and Europe for around £45, or about $60 USD. You’ll find official tasting notes below for your consideration.

Aroma: after a few inhalations you may detect strawberry, elderflower and sweet vanilla mingling with orange citrus

Taste: roll it around your mouth and savour the creamy malt, touch of white pepper and hints of zingy lime zest, sweet vanilla and toasted oak beautifully balanced with rich dark chocolate and smoky bonfire embers.
