Balvenie, The Collector's Loft, Vintage Years
48.5% vol. / 70cl
Malt master David Stewart has skilfully married together small amounts of the Balvenie matured in 4 refill hogsheads and 3 sherry butts. These have quietly matured for at least 40 years. Different cask types impart different characteristics, bringing together a perfect harmony of fruit, spice, sweetness, citrus and oak to create a Balvenie of the very highest order. Bottle shown is from Batch 7, and is for illustration purposes only.
Nose: Rich oak and soft leather, stewed fruits with hints of vanilla.
Palate: Spicy cinnamon and ginger gives a mouth coating sweetness. Some nutty notes with sherried fruits and a gentle oakiness.
Finish: Rich, dry and warming.
