The Balvenie Tasting Collection 3x5 cl
The Balvenie Tasting Collection is a celebration of some of Balvenie’s finest single malts. Consisting of three 5cl bottles, each of a different expression but all underpinned by a distinctive honeyed characteristic. Malt Master, David Stewart uses different cask types and aged spirits to develop new expressions.
The Balvenie Double Wood 12 Years Old gets its unique profile from a maturation process that uses two wood types: a traditional oak whisky cask to soften and add character and a first fill European oak sherry cask which brings a depth and fullness to the final flavour.
The DoubleWood 17 Years Old is the older sibling to the 12 years old and uses the same consecutive maturation process to achieve a unique blend. It is first matured in American oak barrels which add soft vanilla tones, and then secondly in European oak sherry casks which impart spicy undertones and a depth of flavour. With its deeper notes of vanilla and subtle hints of toffee and green apple, this is more complex than the 12 years old.
The final bottle contains Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 years old – a smooth honeyed whisky with a warm lasting finish. It is matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, then transferred for finishing in American oak casks that previously held a unique blend of West Indian rums.
