Balvenie 30 Year Old
LS158-671*

The Balvenie Thirty is a rare and especially fine single malt for which David Stewart selects only exceptional casks that were laid down over thirty years ago. By marrying The Balvenie slowly aged in traditional oak whisky casks with that aged in European oak sherry casks, David creates a rich, mellow Scotch whisky with unusual depth and complexity. ‘Thirty’ is bottled at 47.3% abv to capture all the signature characteristics of The Balvenie.

Balvenie

Balvenie Distillery was built in 1892 in Dufftown. The distillery sits just in the shadow of Balvenie Castle. The Distillery was built by W. & J. Grant, owners of the Glenfiddich distillery. The distillery was fitted with second hand stills from Lagavulin and Glen Albyn distilleries. To this day Balvenie still does some of their own floor malting’s, about 5% of their annual needs. For the first 6 hours of the 48 hour drying process they use peat and the remaining 42 hours they use coal. This gives them a slight smoky flavor to their whisky. They say it is around 5ppm. (Parts per million) Balvenie has been owned by William Grant & Sons since 1892. The distillery has 5 wash stills and 6 spirit stills producing 5,600,000 litres a year. House Style: The most honeyish of malts, with a distinctively orangey note. Luxurious. Best after dinner.


Nose: Silky smooth and honeyed on the nose with mellow oaky tones and hints of candied orange peel. Taste: Great depth with rich dark chocolate, hints of plum, marzipan and caramelised pear. Finish: Exceptionally smooth and warming with gentle spice and lingering sweetness.
