Edencroft has a cracking New addition to it’s range this week with this Balvenie malt from the Speyside region.
||Balvenie – 12 Year Old Single Barrel First Fill
Country: Scotland Region: Speyside
Age: 12 Year Old. Strength: 47.8%
Summary: The Balvenie Single Barrel First Fill has been aged exclusively in a single, first fill, ex-bourbon casks for at least 12 years.
Almost all Scotch Whisky is matured in casks previously used by Bourbon distillers. When bought to Scotland and used for the very first time they are known as First Fill.
Balvenie’s Malt Master samples the aged whisky, cask by cask and selects only those characterised by sweetness and subtle vanilla oak to be bottled as The Balvenie Single Barrel First Fill.
A series of limited editions – Each bottle is one of no more than 300 drawn from a single cask and each bottle is hand-numbered and carries the number of the cask in which it matured.
Limited to 300 bottles from any single cask meaning there will never be more than 299 other bottles the same.
The truest reflection of the original spirit from The Balvenie stills ” no marrying, vatting, blending or finishing ” simply The Balvenie spirit and 12 years in a single American Oak cask.
Created by the nose of our Malt Master David Stewart, Scotland’s longest serving Malt Master with over 50 years service at The Balvenie.
ULTIMATE CRAFTSMANSHIP: An independent family-owned distillery, The Balvenie is the only one to still employ the Five Rare Crafts of whisky making.
NOSE: Bounty of sweet oak and spice.
TASTE: Rich and complex with deep vanilla oakiness. Honey notes will be overlaid with sweet fruits and subtle spices.
FINISH: Lingering sweetness.
