To create The Balvenie Single Barrel Traditional Oak, distillery Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE selects casks of whisky for bottling that have the character he expects of Balvenie matured for 25 years exclusively in American oak.
However, no two casks will ever produce an identical single malt. As such, while the flavor profile will typically be characterised by subtle spices and rich honeyed sweetness. This 25 year old single malt whisky from a Single Barrel is unique and no more than 300 bottles will be filled from any one cask. This is reflected on the bottle label – carrying the distillation date, bottling date and cask number in which the Scotch whisky was matured.
The Balvenie Single Barrel Traditional Oak Aged 25 Years is a non chill-filtered release with an ABV of 47.8%.
