Thanks to natural alchemy and centuries-old craftsmanship, The Balvenie is unique among single malts. Our whisky-making process is dedicated to maintaining the Five Rare Crafts and we are the only distillery in Scotland that still grows its own barley, uses traditional floor maltings and keeps both a coppersmith and a team of coopers on site. And of course, our Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE presides over the all-important maturation process. Making The Balvenie the most hand-crafted of single malts.
The Balvenie Tun 1509 Single Malt Scotch Whisky is mix of 29 bourbon and sherry casks that were mingled for 3 months in Balvenie’s bespoke marrying vessel, the Tun.
NOSE: Fragrant oriental spices on the nose: ginger, cinnamon, fresh orange juice, and brittle toffee.
PALATE: Full and smooth on the palate, with sweet sherry and spicy Jaffa orange.
FINISH: Long, with dark chocolate, oak tannins, raisins, and licorice at the close.
