Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch No.5 Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$899.00 Bottle
  • ABV 50.1%

Reportedly one of the greatest Balvenies to be released. Tun 1401 is the marrying vat nurtured by Balvenie's team of coopers where David Stewart pairs some of the best casks at Warehouse 24 to showcase his mastery. Batch No.5 is drawn from sherry butts and ex Bourbon barrels ranging from 1966 to 1991. This series has already gathered a serious following. We have one only to sell.

Other reviews... So soon? This latest release of what is becoming a legendary series mixes nine casks—four butts, five hoggies—from between 1966 and 1990. Hugely complex and obviously mature, it is one to sit and smell forever. Marzipan, mocha, pain au chocolat, manuka honey; every sniff reveals another aroma. It opens into cigar, sandalwood, citrus, and ripe black fruits. The palate is equally layered and expansive. It takes water, but only a drop, for that density is all-important.
