This latest release from the Speyside based distillery is said to showcase Malt Master David Stewart MBE’s, expertise and stock management skills to marry 21 rare and precious casks from The Balvenie’s aged whisky stocks.
The Balvenie Tun 1509 – Batch 6, is said to deliver notes of soft brown sugar, toffee, blossom honey and ginger oak spices on the nose. Followed by notes of maple syrup, candied orange and runny honey on the palate.
Commenting on the news, David Stewart MBE, The Balvenie Malt Master, said: “Batch 6 is a truly remarkable liquid that showcases gorgeous character and rich depth produced during the marrying process. This expression is sure to have whisky enthusiasts excited, much like the last Tun 1509 series we released a year ago. The liquid presents a beautiful depth on the palette with a touch of maple syrup, candied orange and runny honey. It is delightfully rich on the nose with soft brown sugar, toffee, blossom honey and ginger oak spices, and presents a sweet and malty finish featuring swathes of oak vanilla alongside a spicy layer.”
The Balvenie Tun 1509 – Batch 6, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £300.00.
