The Balvenie 40 Yr Scotch 750ml
Whisky Advocate-Speyside, Scotland - "The darkness of the hue of this...gives an indication of how intense the relationship between cask and spirit has been over its long sequestration...Dense aromas such as tamarind paste, treacle and Black Forest gateau...There's a lift of vanilla like sweetness."
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. The Balvenie Aged 40 Years is bottled at 48.5% ABV to capture all the signature characteristics of The Balvenie.
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: The Balvenie 40 Yr Whisky is Warm and elegant with a honeyed, citrus richness.
