Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 5
70cl / 52.6% abv
This fifth batch of the annual Tun 1509 release marries casks hand-selected by the Balvenie Malt Master, David C. Stewart MBE. This limited edition Speyside single malt takes its name from the traditional oak marrying vessel used to combine and harmonise the liquid. Presented non chill-filtered at a strength of 52.6% abv, only a few thousand bottles are produced in each batch.
Nose: rich and fruity.
Palate: an initial outburst of spice before a richly sherried character emerges.
Finish: dried fruits and elegant oak notes lingering.
