The Balvenie The Creation of a Classic
Through the gently falling snow to Warehouse 41, where among casks and casks of other liquids, sits a new Classic: aged in American Oak, and then finished, once again, in sherry casks.
THE TASTING NOTES
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.
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.
Lingering, lasting dry oak.
