The Balvenie - Cask 15354 - Aged 32 Years

The Balvenie Cask 15354 Aged 32 Years

In 2008 our Malt Master selected for bottling a rare cask from 1975. Cask 15354 was distilled on 23rd September 1975 and just over 32 years later in April 2008 produced 216 bottles at a cask strength of 47.3% abv. This rare single malt has a richly complex aroma that is a harmonious blend of floral, fruity and spicy notes ~ including orange, fresh cherries, marzipan, cinnamon and a hint of allspice. Its taste reveals luscious layers of rich fruit, spicy oak, honey and delicate tannins. The flavours flow from sweet vanilla through to dried fruits (raisins, sultanas, apricots) and finish with subtle soft leather and tobacco leaf. Its finish is long and lingering with a crisp dry oakiness.
