Lovers, Connoisseurs, Collectors! Such a chance does not come often. Maybe it is time to enrich your collection ?!

The Balvenie 50 years old (D.1963, B.2014) Cask # 4567 / 45,4%/ – The first bottling of Balvenie 50 years old was drawn from cask # 5576 (European oak ex-sherry hogshead) in 2012. The cask was filled in 1962 and half a Century later yielded 88 bottles at 44.1% abv. Two years later Balvenie released two more 50-year-old casks (both European oak hogsheads) filled on May 28, 1963. Although filled on the same day and aged in Warehouse No. 24, according to David Stewart, Balvenie malt master, the casks produced totally different whiskies – “single malt from cask # 4567 has a deep reddish hue and a beautifully full taste characterized by dark fruit and spice expected of the European oak cask in which the whiskies were matured”. The whisky is bottled at natural strength of 54.4% abv and presented in a special wooden case built by Sam Chinnery. Each case consists of 49 wooden rings and a closing layer in brass. Only 131 bottles were filled. Producer’s tasting notes.

Nose: rich and deep, initial oakiness is followed by sweeter aromas of raisins and sultanas and a subtle ginger spiciness.

Palate: lush with rich dark fruits, including cherries and blackberries and a spicy outburst of ground ginger, cinnamon and allspice. Oak tannin and a delicious sweetness develop.

Finish: rich and spicy with dried fruits and a lingering sweetness.
