Created by Malt Master David Stewart, The Balvenie Single Barrel Traditional Oak Aged 25 Year Old (48.7% ABV) sits alongside Balvenie’s two other Single Barrel whiskies: 12 Year Old First Fill - fully matured in bourbon barrels and the 15 Year Old Sherry Cask - fully matured in sherry casks.

Each cask of The Balvenie Single Barrel Traditional Oak Aged 25 Year Old is unique and no more than 300 bottles will be filled from any one cask. This is reflected on the bottle label which is hand numbered and carries the distillation and bottling date and cask number in which the whisky was matured.
Commenting on the new release David Stewart, said: “Over the course of my time at the distillery, I’ve sampled thousands of casks and this means I know what to expect when our spirit is matured for many years solely in traditional American oak casks. This allows me to pick out the casks of whisky that display the expected rich, sweet and slightly spicy character I’m looking for. But of course there will always be subtle difference between the whiskies from different casks and I know that more and more drinkers appreciate this and will enjoy the experience of drinking this single cask whisky.”
The Balvenie Single Barrel Traditional Oak Aged 25 Year Old, is non chill-filtered and will be available next month from specialist retailers for a RRP of £400.
