Balvenie 15 Single Barrel Sherry Cask

¥2,500.00

Unveiled in 2014, the 15 Year Old Single Barrel Sherry Cask is a wonderful sight from Balvenie – single malt Scotch whisky fully matured in Sherry casks. These are released in batches of no larger than 800 bottles from a single cask, each one being hand numbered. Although no two casks are the same, and therefore won’t produce an identical single malt, the casks are carefully selected by Balvenie’s Malt Master and feature a consistent, rich, spiced character, complimented by hints of elegant oak.

Tasting Note

Nose: Dense Christmas cake with icing, full of sticky, syrupy dried fruits, cherries, finely chopped nuts and grated nutmeg. Flamed orange peel, ginger, a hint of struck match (but only very subtle in the sample we tasted), fresh orange segments and plums develop.

Palate: Big old fashioned Sherry matured character, more bread-like fruitcake, malt loaf and nutty Oloroso. Slightly bitter and rum-like, superb.

Finish: Spicy fruitcake with cocoa.

Overall: Classic Sherry matured whisky, really top stuff.

What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Balvenie 15 Single Barrel

Quote 1 “A wonderful scotch. Has a definite, memorable identity. Soft honey notes. Like a fine nougat, gentle citrus. Long finish. Liquorice maybe.”

Quote2  “For so long I did not try this because I thought it was the same as the Balvenie 15 year single barrel. I finally noticed the difference and tried a sample. On my gosh! This definitely has some wonderful sherry flavor, and a sweetness, but unlike most sherry it is very light. Very nice fragrance, great flavor, and a soft finish like a sweet kiss.For so long I did not try this because I thought it was the same as the Balvenie 15 year single barrel.
