The Balvenie releases the eighth and final bottling in the Tun 1509 series

The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 8 ​encapsulates 18 rare casks from the distillery’s stocks
Continuing the legacy of the Tun ranges – Tun 1401 and Tun 1509 Batches 1–7 – The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 8 was created by malt master David C. Stewart MBE.

Commenting on the release, Stewart said, “The Tun 1509 series draws to its completion with Batch 8. This Batch is a remarkable marriage of casks which result in a deep and rich Balvenie. To taste we have a rich toffee sweetness, buttery vanilla and a swirl of the house honey style...”

According to the distillery, the whisky also presents sweet flavours of baked citrus tarts, orange marmalade and maple syrup alongside its nuttiness and spiciness. Matured in ex-bourbon and sherry casks, this whisky was married for three months before being bottled without chill filtration.

The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 8 (52.2% ABV) is available now to purchase from various retailers for an RRP of £330.
