Balvenie 15 Years Old Single Barrel 70cl 47.8°

Distillery : Balvenie (The) / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 20521

Balvenie Single Barrel is a 15 Year-Old Single Malt quite renowned in Speyside, and comes from a single cask bottling. This specific bottling comes from a single oak barrel and single distillation, with no combinations. The spirit develops a very fruity body.

Each cask has its own character, so the Malt Master of the Balvenie distillery only selects the casks presenting  essential characteristics typical of 15 Year-Old Balvenie, such as honey, vanilla and oaky flavours.

Each cask bottling releases a limited edition of 350 hand-numbered bottles. Each bottle is unique and irreplaceable.

With a pale golden colour, the dry nose is marked with heather notes and exotic fruits. The finely oaky mouth sensation confirms the nose, and is concluded by a dry, spicy finish.

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.
