Balvenie distillery is located in the Speyside region, right next door to the Glenfiddich distillery, and has been producing excellent malts since 1893. Balvenie is one of the few distilleries that happen to have their own malt floors, and grow their own barley on the adjoining lands.
Balvenie 15yr Single Barrel malt is a very interesting offering, reason being that the unique flavor characteristics of a single cask will be present only in about 350 bottles, that are filled from it. The cask number, cask fill date, bottling date, and bottle number are printed on the label. That being the case, the tasting notes will be different for a given bottle, but one thing assured – all the bottles will retain Balvenie’s signature character! Bottled at 47.8% alc/vol, and non chill-filtered.
NOSE: Honey, peach, port wine, flowers.
PALATE: Marzipan, honey, floral notes and dark fruit.
FINISH: Short, with lilac and honey lingering.
