An incredible whisky produced by and in honour of Malt Master David Stewart's 50th year with William Grant's. Bottled from cask 5576, a European oak sherry hogshead, at natural cask strength, it's been around at Balvenie as long as David and has almost learned as much.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    • Nose

      Fragrant and floral with fruit and oak lusciously intermingled. Citrus notes of lemons and orange peel are followed by honey and vanilla and finally a gentle hint of cinnamon and subtle oak.

    • Taste

      Velvety sweet and wonderfully soft, fruit and citrus notes are accompanied by a beautiful outburst of cinnamon and nutmeg and a subtle back note of honey, all balanced with oak.

    • Finish

      Velvety smooth with a delicious citrus sweetness.

    I recently got given this for our golden anniversary. A most marvelous whisky and I savor every sip. The citrus notes followed by a sweetness is marvelous. Very smooth yet full of flavours. I am going to try and make it last!

    Despite The Price It Worth Every Penny Because It Taste A Bit Better Than By Far More Expensive Bottles Like: Dalmore 62, Springbank 1919, Dalmore Constellation 46, Yamazaki 50 & Karuizawa 50, The Only Other More Expensive Bottle That Can Beat It Is: Macallan 1926, Balvenie 50 & Macallan 1926 Are The Best Ever, All You Need With Is Gurkha Cigar Or Capanarri's Ice Cream Instead & I Can Tell That Ice Cream Is The Best Ever Thing Can Be Eaten Beside Whiskey.

    Outrageously priced for a whiskey that tastes similar to a 21 year old cask. Haven't tried both casks. But for another 3k a bottle, I'll pass. David Stewart a whiskey master, yet until that bottle is priced under 6-7K.. your lighting $$$ on fire.
