To create this single malt, Balvenie matured in traditional oak casks since 1993 was transferred for a final period of maturation in port pipes. The result was a characteristically well-matured Balvenie ~ a delicious Speyside single malt with vanilla oak and honeyed, fruity sweetness on the nose and a rich distinctive taste with hints of ripe apricots and dried fruits rounded off with a vanilla oakiness. Its finish is rich, fruity and long.
There were a total of three vintages: 2002, 2004 and 2006.
