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.

Balvenie 15 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Rich aromas of candied fruit and mixed peel, slight creaminess, with notes of almonds, Christmas cake and Toffifee, countered with some soft fruits – green apple and pear.
Palate: Obvious sherry influence: concentrated dried fruits, toasty oak, milk chocolate and burnt sugar, with some biscuit in there.
Finish: The creaminess mingles with the rich fruit. Very precise.
Whilst no two casks will ever produce an identical single malt, because of the careful sampling and selection by our Malt Master, The Balvenie Single Barrel Sherry Cask 15 Year Old has a consistent character that is rich with elegant oak and subtle spice.
Dried fruits are overlaid with a gentle nuttiness, leading to a long and sherried finish.

slightly disappointed with this as I have been with all the Balvenies that I have tried, in future I will stick with what I enjoy the most.
Very good spirit. A bit different than Balvenie's other offerings, but a very worthwhile dram nonetheless with a fruit-forward nose and palate, and a pleasant slightly smoky finish.
One nice dram, very elegant and fruity.
A finely balanced smooth sherried single malt. Already one of my favorites.
