Balvenie Tun 1401
70cl / 50.6%
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
The long awaited follow up to the distillery only first batch, Tun 1401 Batch 2 is named for Malt Master David Stewart's favourite marrying tun, used to create this whisky. It's a multi-vintage combination of sherry and bourbon cask whiskies from the late 1960s through to the late 1980s and elegantly blends age and (comparative) youthful vigour.

Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Advocate
A vatting of selected casks located at Balvenie's No.24 warehouse in Dufftown, this is made up of seven ex-bourbon casks and three butts whose ages range from 1967 to 1989, all of which are then 'married' in a large vat (aka a 'tun'). There's classic Balvenie honey, along with macadamia, pistachio, and caramelized fruits. As it opens, it shifts into a high-class gentleman's cologne: musk and sandalwood with some mulberry to add depth. Elegant and magnificent. 92 Points

Absolutely amazing stuff, one of the top 5 malts I have ever experienced - I have 2.5 bottles left... If you see it - BUY IT! Thanks Balvenie, 21 Port wood, 14 yr Golden Cask and now this. Keep it coming.
Excellent old malt! Well done Balvenie.
The best bottling from Balvenie! Well crafted Bourbon & Sherry cask. Multi-vintage rare cask from the 60's, 70's and 80'
Nose: thick rich honey with a lot of cinnamon spice. Coconut , vanilla, cloves. Some dried fruit also enter the "party". A terrific nose. Stunning. No less. This is a all i look for in a nose. sexy and luscious. Palate: Golden syrup, cinnamon, oak , orange peel, dark chocolate , nutmeg , sultanas and plums. Exquisite, without being too sweet, or too spicy. Balance. Balance.That’s the keyword here. Finish: Long with Dried mango, and spice. yes, simple and on the money.
