The Balvenie Stories 'The Sweet Toast of American Oak' 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Notify me when this product is available:

Inspired to produce an even fruitier, sweeter Balvenie, Apprentice Malt Master Kelsey McKechnie had the bright idea to import Virgin Oak barrels from Kentucky. After deep toasting them at The Balvenie Cooperage they were filled with Balvenie aged in ex-bourbon barrels. The result is a delectably complex whisky with notes of candied fruit, coconut and delicate vanilla.

About the distillery

In 1892 the Grant family, owners of the already successful Glenfiddich distillery, decided to create a new distillery a stones throw from their first. They named it after the 14th century ruins of nearby castle, Balvenie.

The Balvenie has become one of the most popular Single Malt Whisky brands in the world thanks to it's gorgeous, soft, sweet style and and attention to detail.

Despite it's size and popularity, traditional processes are very much still in practice at The Balvenie; they grow a portion of their own barley, they have their own floor malting, and keep both a full time cooper to attend the barrels and coppersmith to care for the stills.

Head distiller David Stewart MBE is also accredited with the modern practice of "finishing" whereby whiskies matured in a variety of different oak casks and brought together in a different oak cask for a final ageing period. David's wide range of different cask types and finishes creates the interesting and delicious flavours for which The Balvenie has forged its impressive reputation.
