Balvenie The Creation of a Classic Single Malt Whisky

Part of the Balvenie Stories range, The Creation of a Classic is a celebration of David C. Stewart M.B.E.’s creativity and inventiveness, when he created The Balvenie Classic and in doing so, pioneered wood finishing. It is also the story of the team who helped him, through patience and perseverance, to try something new, and create something exceptional.
It has been matured in ex-bourbon casks then matured a while in oloroso sherry casks.

    Nose:    Aromatic and lively, aromas of vanilla and spice evocative of dried clove and chai are layered on a base of earthly, malty undertones reminiscent of Balvenie’s own barley loft.

    Taste:    A perfect complement of light oatmeal syrupiness and brittle toffee are followed by delicate hints of spice and a rich drying sensation from European oak.

    Finish:    Lingering, lasting dry oak.
