Balvenie Creation of a Classic

70cl

A release that has been created to celebrate the occasion of Master Blender David C. Stewart receiving an MBE. This whisky recreates the original 'Classic' Balvenie as created by David at a time when most single malts were just vatted and bottled without much thought to the casks that they had been matured in. David Stewart was one of the first Master Blenders to try something different, by re-racking ex-Bourbon barrels into Sherry butts and puncheons for a final maturation period. A process that later become known as 'finishing' . This whisky has been carefully matured in ex-Bourbon barrels and given some time in high quality Sherry casks before being bottled.

Tasting Notes from the Producer
Aromas (without water) Aromatic and lively, aromas of vanilla and spice evocative of dried clove and chai are layered on a base of earthly, malty undertones reminiscent of Balvenie’s own barley loft.
Flavour A perfect complement of light oatmeal syrupiness and brittle toffee are followed by delicate hints of spice and a rich drying sensation from European oak.
