THE BALVENIE

FORTY


AGED 40 YEARS

To create The Balvenie 40 Year Old, Malt Master David Stewart MBE skilfully marries together small amounts of our most mature single malts. The aged whisky consists of The Balvenie matured in traditional oak casks and European oak sherry butts that have lain in our warehouses for at least 40 years.   

The Balvenie Aged 40 Years is bottled at 48.5% ABV to capture all the signature characteristics of The Balvenie.

TASTING NOTES


NOSE Honey and orange marmalade notes mingle with a creamy fruitiness, followed by a luscious wave of vanilla and a hint of oak.

TASTE Orange blossom, candied ginger and a honeyed sweetness, followed by oak, mouth-coating vanilla notes and a delicate, sherried fruitiness.

FINISH Warm and elegant with a honeyed, citrus richness

 

Rich oak notes shaped this forty year old masterpiece from Balvenie. Malt Master David Stewart has skilfully married together small amounts of Scotch Whisky matured in 4 refill hogsheads and 3 sherry butts that have lain in the warehouses for at least forty years. Resulting in baked apple, stewed fruits like characters with soft leather. A silky smooth texture with a beautifully coating in the mouth. Sensational.
