The Bal­ve­nie 50 year old Cask 4570

Scottish Field - - CONTENTS -

One of two 50-year-old sin­gle malt whiskies from The Bal­ve­nie, Cask 4570 has been ma­tured in a Euro­pean oak hogshead and is the pin­na­cle of The Bal­ve­nie’s range. On the nose, ini­tial malt and oak com­bine with vanilla tof­fee, brown su­gar, blos­som honey and a del­i­cate spici­ness. On the palate its tof­fee sweet­ness, honey and vanilla oak bal­ances with a sub­tle spici­ness and a de­vel­op­ing tangy edge. The fin­ish is rich with a malty sweet­ness and oak notes. Won­der­fully com­plex and el­e­gant, this sin­gle malt is a per­fect ex­am­ple of whisky aged for many years in Euro­pean oak. www.the­bal­ve­nie.com £27,766
