This Balvenie expression is matured for at least 15 years in a traditional ex-bourbon cask, and not to be confused with The Balvenie 15-Year-Old Single Barrel Sherry Cask Scotch. In writing up the Sherry Cask, I promised that I would “tackle this release another day”, so here we are.
No more than 350 of these hand-numbered bottles are drawn from each barrel, and as these are single barrel releases, each barrel is its own animal. The bottle in my possession is number 137 from cask number 279, and bottled at 47.8% abv (95.6 proof).
Fragrant aroma of vanilla, honeyed sweetness, hints of heather and dry oaky notes.
Rich and complex, suggestive of years of careful ageing, it has a honeyed maltiness with vanilla, oak flavours and delicate spice notes.
Long and complex with a hint of liquorice.
