Balvenie - Single Barrel 15 Year OldSpeyside Malt Whisky
The Balvenie Single Barrel Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a 15 year old single malt which is drawn from a single bourbon cask of a single distillation.
Each cask forms a limited edition of hand-numbered bottles - there will be a maximum of 350 bottles from any one cask - so each bottle is unique and unrepeatable. Each cask is subtly different, however, The Balvenie Malt Master selects for bottling only those casks that have the essential characteristics of The Balvenie Single Barrel - particularly honey, vanilla and oaky notes.
The nose is a fragrant aroma of vanilla honeyed sweetness, hints of heather and dry oaky notes.
The taste is rich and complex, suggestive of years of careful ageing, it has a honeyed maltiness with vanilla oak flavours, and hints of spicy peat notes. It has a long and complex finish with a touch of liquorice.
'Silky, rich and complex; a stunning mix of red jelly fruit, guava, orange peel and honey. Magnificent.' Dave Broom, The Handbook of Whisky.
