To create Batch No.1 of The Balvenie Tun 1509, David C. Stewart MBE carefully hand-selected 42 of the finest casks – 35 traditional American oak barrels and seven European oak sherry butts – from the distillery’s precious aged whiskies, creating this unique expression of The Balvenie.
“This is a most delicate and enjoyable whisky. The various casks and decades represented each have a unique story to tell in terms of flavor and aroma that unfold with each sip – milk chocolate, toffee, vanilla, citrus peel, honey, salty pretzels, gingerbread spices, even a fragrant bouquet of spring flowers. It sounds like there’s a lot going on, but each of these flavors compliments the other instead of fighting them. It’s quite the treat if you can get your hands on it!” Reviewed by Amanda Schuster
