The Balvenie - New Wood - Aged 17 Years

The Balvenie New Wood Aged 17 Years

In 2005 The Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, crafted a new expression, The Balvenie NewWood Single Malt Scotch Whisky, by using casks coopered from American white oak which were toasted then charred and unusually, had never previously held any liquid. David selected and married 79 traditional whisky oak casks of at least 17 years of age and transferred this to the new oak casks for four months.
