Drawn exclusively from a single barrel, the Whisky of a unique distillation, treated to a term of no less than fifteen years in an extravagant selection of Oak Casks, which have been seasoned through the maturation of Fine Sherry. Every barrel is subtly different and each bottling comprises a limited edition of no more than 350 hand numbered bottles, all with a distinct personality and individual character.
The Balvenie is unlike all other Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, thanks to a unique combination of human craft and natural alchemy, neither of which have changed in over a century. Nowhere else will you find a Distillery that still grows its own barley, still turns by shovel its own traditional floor maltings, still employs a team of coopers to tend all the casks and a coppersmith to maintain the stills.
Deep toasty amber hues. A rich combination of elegant oak and subtle spice. Smooth and complex, suggestive of many years careful ageing, hints of dried fruit and spice overlaid with a gentle nuttiness, oak flavours and delicate spice notes. A long and sherried finish.
