An additional period of maturation in 30 year-old port pipes has given this aged Balvenie an extra level of depth and concentration of flavour, adding potent fruit and smoke notes to the silky-smooth full-bodied palate. Rich, indulgent, after-dinner Speyside at its best.Tasting Notes (2)
Each expression in the Cask Finishes series is matured in two different cask types in succession, adding extra depth and complexity to The Balvenie’s soft, honeyed single malt. This 21-year-old whisky is finished in casks that previously held sweet Port wines, creating a dram with layers of sticky dried fruits, toasted nuts and sweet spices that coat the palate and linger gently in the finish.
One of the original seven stills of Dufftown, The Balvenie has been in business since 1892. Its storied history is full of experimentation, a spirit of curiosity that has been passed down through the generations. Though the distillery boasts an open-minded approach to distilling and maturation, it also maintains a connection with tradition. Today, it is one of only seven distilleries in Scotland to operate a floor maltings on-site. It’s not the easiest way to get malted barley, or the cheapest, but having direct control over the raw materials has allowed Balvenie to remain creative.

Long, with nuts and hints of cocoa.
Producer's Tasting Notes
A perfume of fruity and ripe raisin notes, backed by a nutty dryness.
A malt of refinement and remarkable character, it is creamy and silky with fruit, honey and spice notes, and has a long and gentle nutty finish.

Right up there as some of the finest whisky to pass my lips: a beautifully rounded, fruity flavour with a silky sweet finish…one for the top shelf
I first tried this whilst living in China where the Whisky scene has absolutely exploded, I love it!
I tried 14 excellent whiskies at a tasting last weekend. This one was the clear winner. It was the unanimous winner among myself and my six friends. Can't recommend it enough!
Finally got round to buying one of these. I wasn't disappointed! The port flavours are balanced and it doesn’t come across too sweet. Had to have a few glasses just to check but definitely a worthwhile addition to the whisky cupboard.
