Review by The Balvenie

Nose

Rich and deep, lots of exotic and elegant oak notes, followed by sweeter aromas of dried fruits raisins and dates, then a spicy outburst of ground ginger and some melted brown sugar.

Palate

Rich and lush and slightly tangy with candied orange peel, lots of oak vanilla. some golden syrup, layers of honeycomb, toasted hazelnuts with some spicy ginger and nutmeg to finish.

Finish

Sweet and malty with oak vanilla and spices.

Note

The latest batch of The Balvenie's wonderfully complex Tun bottlng has beeen released. Tun 1509 Batch 7 is a marriage of 21 casks, comprised of refill Bourbon barrels, refill Sherry butts and refill Sherry hogsheads.

With the average age of these whiskies said to exceed 20 years, this wonderful assemblage of some of the The Balvenie's finest aged stock.

All of the Tun series has spent at least 3 months in its own traditional oak marrying vessel built and tended by the distillery's onsite team of Coopers and kept permanently in warehouse 24, a traditional dunnage warehouse. The perfect environment for the different casks to 'knit' together,
