The Balvenie 40 Year
Directly from the Balvenine Malt Master:
“To create The Balvenie 40 Year Old, Malt Master David Stewart MBE skilfully marries together small amounts of our most mature single malts. The aged whisky consists of The Balvenie matured in traditional oak casks and European oak sherry butts that have lain in our warehouses for at least 40 years.
“Nose: Honey and orange marmalade notes mingle with a creamy fruitiness, followed by a luscious wave of vanilla and a hint of oak.
“Taste: Orange blossom, candied ginger and a honeyed sweetness, followed by oak, mouth-coating vanilla notes and a delicate, sherried fruitiness.
“Finish: Warm and elegant with a honeyed, citrus richness.”
