Customer Rating
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.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Rich aromas of candied fruit, with creamy almonds, Christmas cake, green apple and pear.

    Palate: Concentrated dried fruit, toasty oak, milk chocolate and burnt sugar with biscuit hints.

    Finish: The creaminess mingles with the rich fruit.

  • 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.

  • Producer's Notes

    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.

    An absolutely fantactic dram. It does vary by batch but the two I have had have been fantastic: similat but better that Macallan 18yo (1995). The people saying it's overrated need to go back to drinking Ardbeg Kelpie.

    What is the hype with this one? Almost finished 1/2 a bottle and i?m not impressed. One dimensional and just an average dram imop.

    Overrated and extremely young tasting. I diluted this to almost half water to tolerate it. The more standard bottlings are not only cheaper money wise, but are at least 2 stars better.

    The consistency from cask to cask is highly variable and erratic. I have encountered some darker appearing samples that are rough, irritating, and lacking the smoothness factor. Prior 15 year batches without the sherry were much smoother, tasteful, and consistent.

    An absolute little stunner. I have 30 different bottles open and this one is the best.

    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.

    A finely balanced smooth sherried single malt. Already one of my favorites.
