Balvenie Single Barrel 15 year old, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl.
Balvenie Single Barrel 15 year old, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl. One of Scotland’s favourite malt whiskies the Balvenie! This is a special one, a single cask bottling 1 of only 800 bottles!
Filled from a single sherry cask
Nose: Dense Christmas cake with icing, full of sticky, syrupy dried fruits, cherries, finely chopped nuts and grated nutmeg. Flamed orange peel, ginger, a hint of struck match (but only very subtle in the sample we tasted), fresh orange segments and plums develop.
Palate: Big old fashioned Sherry matured character, more bread-like fruitcake, malt loaf and nutty Oloroso. Slightly bitter and rum-like, superb.
Finish: Spicy fruitcake with cocoa.
