AGED 12 YEARS
The Balvenie DoubleWood 12 year old single malt whisky gains its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types.
To make The Balvenie DoubleWood, David Stewart MBE takes whisky that has spent at least 12 years in traditional whisky casks, American Oak ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads, and moves it to Spanish oak ex-Oloroso sherry casks for an additional nine months.
The whisky is then transferred to large oak vessels called “tuns” for 3-4 months to allow the whiskies to “marry”.
Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt whisky. The traditional casks soften and add delicate character, the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour and the final few months in our tuns allow the whiskies to marry harmoniously.
NOSE Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.
TASTE Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours ~ nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry.
FINISH Long and Warming
CARIBBEAN CASK 14
AGED 14 YEARS
The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 year old single malt whisky has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ in casks that previously held Caribbean rum.
To create the ideal finish Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE filled American oak casks with his own blend of select West Indian rums.
When he judged the casks to be ready, the rum was replaced with the 14 year old spirit and the wood was put to work adding the final touches.
The result is an exceptional single malt whisky with the traditional smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie married with notes of toffee and a hint of fruit, with a warm, lingering finish.
NOSE Rich, sweet and creamy toffee on the nose combines with fresh fruit notes
TASTE Rounded with vanilla and sweet oak notes, with a fruity character that develops with time
FINISH Soft and lingering
SINGLE BARREL 15
AGED 15 YEARS
The Balvenie Single Barrel Sherry Cask has been matured exclusively in a single European oak sherry butt for at least 15 years. The term ‘Single Barrel’ conveys the unique nature of the single malt whisky, which has been drawn from a single cask of a single distillation.
Limited by nature, each heavily toasted European oak Oloroso sherry butt will yield no more than 800 bottles of Scotch whisky.
NOSE Dried fruits overlaid with a gentle nuttiness
TASTE Rich with elegant oak and subtle spice
FINISH Long, sherried finish
THE BALVENIE PEAT WEEK (2003 VINTAGE)
AGED 14 YEARS
At a time when few Speyside distilleries were using peat in production, The Balvenie decided to distil a batch of heavily peated malt, which was laid down to mature at the distillery in Dufftown, Scotland.
Ever since then we’ve dedicated one week each year, named Peat Week, to using 100% Highland peat to dry our barley. Instead of coastal elements of iodine, salt and medicinal characteristics so commonly associated with Islay peat, Highland peat imparts earthy, woody smoke notes. This means that even though Peat Week is made using heavily peated malt it has an unexpected sweetness deeply rooted in the Speyside regional character.
The Balvenie Peat Week Aged 14 Years is a single vintage bottling, limited and rare by nature. This non-chill filtered expression is bottled at 48.3% ABV and matured solely in American Oak casks, providing a velvety and round taste with woody peat smoke balancing oaky vanilla and honey.
NOSE Gentle sweet peat smoke with some lighter floral notes and delicate butterscotch honey.
TASTE Velvety and round to taste with the peat smoke balancing citrus flavours, oaky vanilla and blossom honey.
FINISH Gentle smoke with a lingering and creamy vanilla sweetness.
