A limited-edition bottling, every release of the Balvenie’s Single Barrel First Fill collection has a different character. The 300 bottles in each release are drawn from the same cask, carefully selected by the Malt Master for their sweetness and vanilla oak flavours. Aged in first-fill ex-bourbon casks, these bottles have sweet notes of fruit, honey and toffee combined with oak and peppery spice. Every bottle is hand-numbered and labelled with the cask reference number making this a special dram perfect as a gift or to form part of a collection.
Nose: Subtle vanilla with some oakiness. Hints of toasted oats, light charcoal and spices form a rich, rounded scent profile.
Palate: Fruity flavours of green apples and pears combine with honeyed sweetness and toffee notes. Lightly balanced with subtle charcoal and wood flavours and some cinnamon spice.
Finish: Fruit cake flavours leave a lingering spicy and sweet finish.
