The Balvenie Aged 25 years
In a flawless whisky marriage, Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE brings together individual casks that have matured in Traditional American and European Oak to craft an incredibly intricate and balanced expression; exemplifying the art and skill of Single Malt TUN marriages.
A whisky of exceptional character, Twenty-Five hints at our most sought-after Balvenie flavors – bold vanilla oak, crystallized ginger and sweet runny honey.
Smooth and honeyed on the nose with mellow oaky tones and hints of candied orange peel.
The initial bold vanilla oak flavors slowly dissipate to reveal layers of toasted marshmallows, fresh fruit terrine and cinnamon infused apple tart.
Exceptionally long lasting sweetness.
Every year I have a "dram" and ring my bell. I can't tell you what it taste like because I want to keep it to myself. Meaning I don't want the demand for it to go up. Every year I look at my glass, and say I want more. If you can afford it buy it and enjoy a piece of heaven.
