Thanks to a unique combination of natural alchemy and centuries old craftsmanship, Balvenie remains one of the most independent and prestigious distilleries in all of Scotland. Situated in the heart of the Speyside region, Balvenie unusually grows all of its own barley and still employs a traditional malting floor – the last of its kind in the Scottish Highlands. A resident coppersmith maintains the distinctively shaped stills, and a skilled team of coopers ensure each barrel is kept in perfect condition. Balvenie 40 Year Old is a rare and exquisite single malt whisky which is meticulous blended together by legendary in-house malt master, David Stewart. This skilful spirit marriage brings together tiny amounts of The Balvenie that have matured in four refill hogsheads and three sherry butts for at least 40 years. The resulting dram is a transcendent and multi-layered taste journey that is impossibly complex, rewarding and luxurious. Rich oak notes feature on the nose, overlaid with baked apple, stewed fruits and soft leather. The addition of a little water releases sweet fruit notes and hints of vanilla. In the mouth, a silky texture delivers a beautifully mouth-coating sweetness and a spicy sensation of cloves, cinnamon and ginger. The flavour develops into a gentle oakiness with hints of dark chocolate, roasted almonds and sherried fruitiness emerging on a rich and dry finish. A perfect whisky in every way, this is an essential addition to any serious spirits collection.£485.71 per 100.00ml
