Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 7 Description
This seventh release in the Tun 1509 series from The Balvenie brings together ten refill sherry butts, four American oak refill barrels and seven sherry hogsheads of the distillery's precious aged stocks, and marries them for three months in the eponymous Tun 1509, a traditional oak vessel stored in warehouse 24. Crafted under the expert nose of Malt Master David C Stewart, this limited edition expression is bottled at a natural cask strength of 52.4% free from chill filtration. A true work of art!
Nose: rich oak and sweet dried fruits.
Palate: rich oak vanilla, golden syrup, honeycomb and slightly tangy orange peel with hazelnuts and spicy ginger.
Finish: sweet and malty with lingering vanilla oak spice.
