Official tasting notes
A consistent character that is deep and delicate. Mouth coating, creamy rich toffee, honey and stewed fruit notes reveal velvety muscovado sugar and light orange peel. The finish is rich and lingering.

This delightful 21-year-old single malt from Balvenie’s limited-edition ‘Single Barrel’ program has been matured exclusively in a refill American oak cask selected by the Malt Master who carefully samples the aged whisky cask by cask. He will then select the whisky that characterises subtle spices and a rich honeyed sweetness to be bottled as ‘The Balvenie Single Barrel Traditional Oak’.
The expression is one of no more than 300 hand numbered bottles drawn from a single cask, forming a whisky never to be repeated. All the bottles are non-chill filtered, bottled at a strength of 47.8% alc and hand-numbered and labelled with the cask reference number.
