Balvenie Rare Marriages 25 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 48% abv
In a flawless whisky marriage, Balvenie’s Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE brings together individual casks that have matured in Traditional American and European Oak to craft an incredibly intricate and balanced expression, exemplifying the art and skill of Single Malt TUN marriages. A whisky of exceptional character, Twenty-Five hints at Balvenie’s most sought-after flavours – bold vanilla oak, crystallised ginger and sweet runny honey.
Nose: Smooth and honeyed on the nose with mellow oaky tones and hints of candied orange peel.
Palate: The initial bold vanilla oak flavours slowly dissipate to reveal layers of toasted marshmallows, fresh fruit terrine and cinnamon infused apple tart.
Finish: Exceptionally long lasting sweetness.
