Balvenie Single Barrel 25 Years Old 70cl 46.9°
The Balvenie broadens its Single Barrel range and releases the eldest of the trio: 25 Years-Old Single Barrel, joining the two others: The Balvenie Single Barrel First Fill 12 Years Old et The Balvenie Single Barrel Sherry Cask 15 Years Old.
For 25 years, Balvenie Single Barrel has matured in traditional American oak casks. The qualities of this traditional oak cask are preserved by the cooper craftsmen of The Balvenie, burning the inside of the casks to coax out the formidable aromatic richness of the wood.
25 Year-Old Single Barrel possesses the complexity of a mature whisky, a symphony of sweet, honeyed and oaky notes, lifted by a fragrant and fruity bouquet.

The Balvenie is a small distillery nestled in the Scottish Highlands, at the heart of the land of whisky: Speyside.
The Balvenie is a real museum, as nothing changed much since its establishment in 1892. Its name derives from the Balvenie castle (13th century), located a few hundred yards away. Since 1892, it has been family-owned and family-run. This independence allows the distillery to focus exclusively on the production of traditional craft Single Malts. The name “Balvenie” is a mystery in itself. If “Bal” means house or farm in Gaelic, the meaning of “Venie” has been lost. The Balvenie is proud to be one of the last four distilleries of the Highlands to use a traditional malting area. Four maltmen turn the malt three times a day, seven days a week, to even out the germination. The nine stills are placed under the close surveillance of a skilled blacksmith. In order to keep all of the character of The Balvenie Single Malts, the stills in used today are the exact replica of the originals. Until today, the oak casks are crafted by coopers, continuing the traditions and maintaining the skills alive as an heritage of ancient craftsmanship.
