A 19 year old single malt Scotch whisky bottling, from The Balvenie Stories Collection, which was produced using locally sourced ingredients found in the distillery grounds. Home-grown barley malted at The Balvenie Maltings, water from the Convel hills and fresh heather from Burnhead Wood. This is the first ever expression from the distillery to be made entirely from ingredients grown on its Dufftown estate.
Nose: Lively and vibrant, this Balvenie has notes of fig and geranium oil perfectly balanced with fresh herbal undertones reminiscent of green woodland.
Taste: Flavours of honey, cloves and caramelised baked dates are layered on top of delicate citrus and spice. The sweetness reveals an underlying oaky dryness.
Finish: Lingering, oaky, dried blossom.
