Balvenie Tun batch 2 | 3D Printed Cask • With over 50 years of experience, Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE possesses an unequalled knowledge of The Balvenie. For The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch No.2, David hand-selects an assemblage of vintage casks from the distillery’s precious aged whisky stocks and fills them to Tun 1509, housed in Warehouse 24. Three months later emerges this exceptionally complex and rare single malt Scotch whisky.
Complexity - one of the most commonly desired traits in a whisky has to be this. And as much as I enjoy the experience of unraveling layer upon layer of different flavors in a complex single malt, there’s a wonderful charm to the individuality of single cask whisky. Though not as orchestral of a tasting experience (most of the time), single cask whisky offers an opportunity to experience whisky at a more granular level. But is single cask whisky better than single malt whisky? Or is single cask whisky more than the sum of its parts and therefore superior to the individualistic experience of the single cask? Comment below and let’s discuss... . . . #whisky#whiskey#singlecask#singlemalt#balvenie#balvenie12#scotch#chicago#mondaymotivation
Cask No. 77.53 A Delectable Confection Distilled: 13th February 1991 Cask Type: First Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel Region: Highland 1 of 127 bottles ABV: 41.3% The nose is frivolously fruity – red fruits and berries, golden syrup on roasted peaches, barley sugars and rumtopf with waffles. Even neat the palate is easy-drinking, with charming golden warmth – almond slice, vanilla custard, mincemeat pies, kumquat and orange peel; the finish has teasingly tannic oak, noble rot and shisha tobacco. The reduced nose is a delectable confection of fruit gums, rainbow drops, candied orange and lemon slices, dried pineapple and dark chocolate. The palate now achieves delicate bittersweet balance – brandy snaps, rum and raisin fudge and golden pears cooked in honey with hints of numbing clove and spun sugar decoration.

I bought this expression a couple of months ago after enjoying it (a lot!) at a Balvenie tasting presented by Brand Ambassador, Ross Blainey💁🏽♀️ . SIDE NOTE - Ross! CONGRATULATIONS on your well-deserved inclusion in Australian Bartender Magazine’s Most Influential list (I’m clapping as I’m typing!) 👏🏽🥳 - END SIDE NOTE Now, back to the whisky! 🥃 . As per scotchwhisky.com, ‘The Sweet Toast of American Oak is an expression created by apprentice malt master Kelsey McKechnie with guidance from Balvenie malt master David Stewart. . ‘The whisky is matured primarily in ex-Bourbon barrels for 12 years before being finished for three months in bespoke virgin American oak casks sourced from Kelvin Cooperage in Kentucky. . ‘The cooperage gave the casks a long, slow toast for 20 minutes, before sending them on to the distillery in Speyside for an additional toast to ‘bring out as much flavour as possible’. . ‘Bottled at 43% abv, the whisky is described as having ‘even stronger, sweeter coconut and warm honey’ notes than Balvenie’s classic character.’ . I can defo attest to the deliciousness of this dram👌🏽 . I’d also add the words: vanilla, butterscotch, oaky, luscious, creamy, nutmeg, and toffee to the tasting notes 🤤 . But, here’s the thing. We can talk about notes and finishes and blah, blah, blah all we want. However for me, what makes this whisky special is that it’s the end result of a young woman’s persistence and determination to produce a fantastic whisky - the first to bear her name, and one worthy of the great Balvenie distillery #pressuremuch?😳 . It’s impossible to do anything but praise Ms. McKechnie’s application and be in awe of her tenacity, because this bottling is not only is a testament to her character, but it also augers extremely well for the distillery’s future. . So, just in case I haven’t made myself clear, I lurrrv that David Stewart’s apprentice is a woman 👏🏽 .
