The Balvenie - Fifty - Aged 50 Years

The Balvenie Fifty Aged 50 Years

The Balvenie Fifty was matured in a European oak sherry hogshead, rarely used today in whisky making. Filled with newly distilled spirit in 1962, over the following 50 years, while David Stewart perfected and practiced his craft, the spirit slowly matured into a truly exceptional outstanding single malt Scotch whisky. The particularly long maturation has created a wonderful fragrant and floral whisky, velvety sweet with a beautifully balanced combination of sweet citrus notes and gentle hints of honey, spice and oak. ABV of 44.1%. Limited edition release with only 88 bottles available.
