The Sweet Toast of American Oak

Aged 12 Years

Inspired to produce an even fruitier, sweeter Balvenie, Apprentice Malt Master Kelsey McKechnie had the bright idea to import Virgin Oak barrels from Kentucky. After deep toasting them at The Balvenie Cooperage they were filled with Balvenie aged in ex-bourbon barrels. The result is a delectably complex whisky with notes of candied fruit, coconut and delicate vanilla.

43% ABV

750ml

Nose

Lusciously malty with some sweet fudge, followed by citrusy and oak vanilla aromas with layers of spicy oak notes of ginger and cinnamon.

Taste

Candied orange and lemon peel, vanilla toffee and butterscotch, layers of blossom honey, some melted brown sugar and oak spices at the end.

Finish

Rich and malty with gentle waves of oak vanilla and subtle spices.

The story of The Sweet Toast of American Oak

This is the story of the spectacular things that can happen when an ancient technique meets fresh ideas. “Some would call us ‘aff our heeds’, but I suppose you’ve got to try something really different now and again,” explains Mashman Brian Webster.

The Balvenie is always thinking of new ideas, and I’m proud to be a part of that. Everyone mucks in.
