Balvenie Tun 1509 / Batch 7
Product Description

The seventh release of Balvenie Tun 1509 is a combination of 21 hand-selected casks - four American oak barrels, 10 sherry butts and seven hogsheads - that have spent three in a traditional marrying tun. Rich aromas of oak, dried fruits, raisins, dates, ground ginger and brown sugar fill the nose. The palate offers notes of tangy candied orange peel, oaky vanilla, golden syrup, honeycomb, toasted hazelnuts, ginger and nutmeg that linger in the finish.

About the Balvenie Tun range

What began as a distillery-only bottling has now become one of the most-loved parts of Balvenie's range.

The first bottlings were named after David Stewart MBE's favourite marrying vat – Tun 1401 – and each of the following series has been named after the tun the whisky was married in. Every year David creates a new batch that brings together some of the best casks from the distillery's archive.

Cask Composition

Each whisky in the series spends at least three months in a traditional oak marrying vat – the tun – in a traditional dunnage warehouse.

Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 7 is created by marrying 21 different casks, their individual characteristics creating a singular expression greater than the sum of its parts. Explore the casks below:

    I was expecting a sherry forward Tun given the amount of sherry hogshead and refill sherry cask that was being used, but was surprised by the spiciness of this whisky. While the nose is sherry forward, the palate and finish are definitely more influenced by the oak characteristic. I think its a great whisky from Balvenie!
