The Balvenie Single Barrel 15 Year Old 1999 Scotch Whisky, 70cl, 47.8% A BV
It wasn't until 1990, when Kininvie distillery was able to shoulder some of the responsibility for blending stock production, that Balvenie was really able to push forward as a single malt. The distillery quickly distinguished itself through use of innovative maturation processes, and was a pioneer of cask "finishing" with the introduction of it's DoubleWood expression in 1993. Balvenie is also one of the few remaining distilleries still using on site maltings, although today this only meets a small percentage of its requirements.
To create the Single Barrel series, the Balvenie Malt Master selects only those casks deemed to epitomise the distillery's quintessential characteristics; particularly honey, vanilla and oaky notes.
