This is one of the oldest regular releases from Balvenie at 40 years old. Matured in a combination of sherry and bourbon wood it has a rich intense nose of fruit cake with vanilla, dried apricots, citrus, and ginger. The palate has orange blossom honeyed sweetness and sherried fruit.
Using some of the rarest casks that have been carefully matured in Traditional American and European Oak in The Balvenie warehouses, our Honorary Ambassador and Former Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE crafts a bold marriage of extraordinary character. Rich and refined; intense honeyed oak and rich fruit create a complex layer of sweetness and spice; then warm notes of ginger and citrus are revealed.
