The Balvenie A Revelation of Cask and Character 750ml (Available in store)
The Balvenie is one of the few distilleries in Scotland with an on-site cooperage, where casks are repaired and maintained. Head cooper Ian McDonald has been working with casks for 50 years and this release taps into his extensive knowledge, as well as that of his colleagues who build sherry casks in Spain. The result is this 19-year-old oloroso-sherry-cask-matured expression with layers of dried fruit, nuts and spice.
An aroma that is rich with elegant oak and subtle spice. The palate features dried fruits, overlaid with a gentle nuttiness. The finish is long and sherried.
