The Balvenie’s malt master David C Stewart MBE
has revealed the latest expression in the range of single malts, The Balvenie
25 Years Old.
This new bottling will form part of the Rare Marriages range; the collection is a tribute to David’s dedication to designing and building flavour through the marriage of rare casks and the 25-year-old expression will join the 30- and 40-year-old whiskies already within the collection.
As a permanent fixture in the Speyside distillery’s portfolio, the Rare Marriages range is created for those looking to understand and enjoy the marriage that occurs in the traditional oak marrying tun as an art form of science and alchemy.
The Balvenie 25 Years Old
David C. Stewart MBE said: “The Balvenie has incredible depth of flavour and our Rare Marriages range is designed to unveil intricacies of our whisky in a bold marriage of extraordinary character. This range reflects the very essence of luxury through the experience of layers of flavours.
“On the surface, the first release of The Balvenie 25 expression is immediately recognisable as The Balvenie with the distinct rich honey and underlying rich oakiness however, when given time, the flavour unfolds to reveal a whole new depth – from toasted marshmallow and caramelised pear, to citrus richness and mellow oakiness.
“Made from casks that have stood the important test of time, this special whisky has a distinct profile and experience which we have designed to reveal the wonderful depth of The Balvenie single malt.”
The Balvenie 25 Years Old, with an ABV of 48% will be available in select retailers at an RRP of £600, including Clink*, The Whisky Shop and Harvey Nichols from July 19th.
