K&L Notes

This is the new 15-year-old sherry barrel release from Balvenie. The photo does not reflect the specific barrel in stock. This limited release has become one of the most popular expression from the excellent Dufftown based distillery. Balvenie is one of the few distillers to retain traditional distilling and malting practices. They dry their barley over a mixture of light peat and anthracite coal which create a complexity that industrial maltsers electrically heated fans cannot mimic. While it's not peaty after years in barrel, it does offer complexity unmatched by other Speysiders. These single barrels have spent 15 years in fresh first fill European Oak Oloroso Sherry Butts thereby complementing the incredibly complex spirit of the Balvenie Distillery with the rich flavors of that special Spanish wine. For many of the distillery's aficionados this is now the quintessential expression. Producer note: "The Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Barrel Sherry Cask is a celebration of the unique and mysterious interaction between oak, spirit and time. This exceptional whisky is matured exclusively in a European oak sherry butt for at least 15 years. And while each cask is subtly different—Malt Master David Stewart hand selects each barrel for its flavor of dried fruits, nuts and spice. No more than 650 hand-numbered bottles are drawn from each sherry butt, making every bottling unique and unrepeatable. The Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Barrel is bottled at a higher strength of 47.8% ABV."

    This is without a doubt the most exciting new product from Balvenie since the wildly collectable Tun 1401 series. Now, what makes this so interesting, despite the full term in Sherry, is that they're bottling these without filtration at slightly higher proof. That means we've got the ultra rich oily texture that's so important for appreciating this special distillery. Of course, each cask is different, but every one I've tasted so far has been exceptional.
