Delivery will be during the last week of March, but be warned, the release is limited to only 300 bottles, so it will be available on a first come basis.
The Balvenie malt whisky has been aged exclusively in a single, first fill, ex-bourbon casks for at least 12 years.
Balvenie is an independent family-owned distillery and the only one to still employ the Five Rare Crafts of whisky making:-
They grow their own barley, malt their own barley on traditional malting floors, have their own cooperage, a dedicated coppersmith, and the longest serving Malt Masters in the industry in David Stewart.
Most Scotch Whisky is matured in casks previously used by Bourbon distillers. When it is bought to Scotland and used for the very first time it is known as a ‘First Fill’ cask.
It is at this stage that Balvenie’s Malt Master samples the aged whisky, cask by cask and selects only those samples characterised by sweetness and subtle vanilla oak to be bottled as The Balvenie Single Barrel First Fill.
This release is part of an ongoing 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.
