Balvenie 15 Year Old Sherry Cask 750ml

NV Balvenie 15 Year Old Sherry Cask [click image to zoom]
image may not be actual bottle available

The Balvenie’s 15 year old Single Barrel Sherry Cask has been matured exclusively in a single European oak sherry butt for at least 15 years. No more than 650 hand-numbered bottles are drawn from each sherry butt and each bottle carries the number of the cask in which it was matured.

Color - Lovely color – Deep, rich mahogany with a lovely string of pearls that formed when poured from that welcomed ABV.

Nose - The aromas are already filling the room with rich spices and sweet fruity notes – Cinnamon, nutmeg, red tea, butter pecan, all sorts of mixed dried fruit – apple, raisin, fig, cranberry, prune – toffee, baked almonds now, dark chocolate and dry, seasoned oak. After a bit of time it’s like fruit cake and fudge. Delicious. This is another one of those whiskies that you can really get lost in.

Palate - It comes in with this thick, rich and coating, sweet and fruity approach – apple, plum, raisin, cherry and even a bit of apricot now – with wonderful spices that begin to show themselves around mid-palate – clove, cinnamon, nutmeg – then it all balances together quite nicely and dances around the tongue before making its way into a nice long finish. There’s also a bit of that nuttiness and chocolate around mid-palate back as well. Chocolate covered cherries almost.

Finish - Long, slightly drying and full of all those wonderful fruit and spice characteristics.

However within Speyside there can still be a significant differences. There are those on the lighter side, such as Glenlivet and Singleton of Glendullan and those richer, rounder Scotches from Macallan and Aberlour.

Single malts, made by a single distillery and from 100% malted barley, comprise the majority of our selection. However you will also find a number of popular blended Scotches as well as some very special one-off, single barrel, single malts from independent bottlers.
