Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Sherry Barrel Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml
Distillery Notes- 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.

WHISKY ADVOCATE REVIEW: One of the finest Balvenie 15 year olds that I’ve tasted. The flavors are clean, well defined, confident, and beautifully balanced. Full malty foundation (with some ripe barley thrown in). Soft, creamy vanilla, honeycomb, bright fruit (orange, nectarine, lemon peel, hints of pineapple), with emerging dried vanilla, coconut, oak resin, and subtle anise. Polished oak finish. It doesn’t have the depth that the classic older Balvenies have shown in the past, but what it does have, it has in spades. Quite splendid!
WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: Matured exclusively in a former Sherry cask for at least 15 years, this amber single-malt Scotch has Sherry-like dried-fruit and vanilla scents. The palate is boldly smoky and relatively dry, with a lift of iodine and sea breeze, plus vanilla, praline and a spicy, rather fiery finish. The production size is no more than 650 bottles drawn from a single cask.
