Inspired to produce an even fruitier, sweeter Balvenie, Apprentice Malt Master Kelsey McKechnie had the bright idea to import Virgin Oak barrels from Kentucky. After deep toasting them at The Balvenie Cooperage they were filled with Balvenie aged in ex-bourbon barrels. The result is a delectably complex whisky with notes of candied fruit, coconut and delicate vanilla.
NOSE Lusciously malty with some sweet fudge, followed by citrusy and oak vanilla aromas with layers of spicy oak notes of ginger and cinnamon.
MOUTH Candied orange and lemon peel, vanilla toffee and butterscotch, layers of blossom honey, some melted brown sugar and oak spices at the end.
FINISH Rich and malty with gentle waves of oak vanilla and subtle spices.
1792 Small Batch Bourbon is sophisticated and complex. A distinctly different bourbon created with precise craftsmanship. Made from a signature "high rye" recipe and the marriage of select barrels carefully chosen by their Master Distiller. 1792 Bourbon has an expressive and elegant flavor profile. Unmistakable spice mingles with sweet caramel and vanilla to create a bourbon that is incomparably brash and bold, yet smooth and balanced.
Matured entirely in ex-Rioja barrels this is glorious burnished red gold coloured whisky that emphasise its unusual aging. Red berries sit harmoniously alongside classic Isaly peat smoke and a touch of salt.
The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 year old single malt whisky has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ in casks that previously held Caribbean rum.
Rich, sweet and creamy toffee on the nose combines with fresh fruit notes. Rounded on the palate with vanilla and sweet oak notes, with a fruity character that develops with time.
