Balvenie 15yo Single Barrel is always a complex proposition, the higher alcohol content giving the malt a bit of extra muscle, although the rich, fruity distillery character is still very evident. This thinker's dram was a winner at the World Whisky Awards 2010.
Beautifully-presented bottle of Tobermory. The whisky is matured in Gonzalez Byass Oloroso sherry casks and the casks mature on the mainland before travelling back to Mull for the final year before bottling.

Balvenie haven't often released fully sherry matured whisky and we're very pleased to welcome the 15yo Single Barrel Sherry Cask to the range. Each bottle is part of a batch of only a few hundred, each filled from a single cask. Every batch will vary a little, but all will show off the great combination of Balvenie's spirit and rich sherry oak.

A single cask bottling of 1998 vintage Laphroaig, one of a small range of excellent casks chosen by TWE and bottled by Signatory.
