Balvenie 16 Years Triple Cask

DESCRIPTION

16 Year Old Balvenie Single Malt Scotch whisky from their Triple Cask range, which was launched for travel retail. The Triple Cask range is matured in first-fill American oak barrels, traditional refill casks and first-fill Oloroso Sherry butts. The 16 year old shows off a lot more vanilla and fruit than the 12 year old Triple Cask - the extra years in the casks also bring out plenty more fragrant, oak-spices.

TASTING NOTES 

Nose: The nose starts off with delicate notes of honey, vanilla, and toffee. Very treacly with pleasant flavors of dark fruit, raspberry in particular, mixed with gentle citric aroma and a whiff of pepper and lingering oak in the back. Rich and complex.
Taste: Smooth and soft with a rich vanilla sweetness. Slightly sherry flavours and fruity notes of peaches and plums arrive, complemented by lingering toffee and a warm load of delicate spices - white pepper, caramelised ginger, nutmeg, oak and a fine whiff of cinnamon. Vibrant and voluptuous.
Finish: The finish is long, warm and spicy with red berries, honey, toffee and a whiff of smoke on the tail.


With water: Fresh on the nose with more yellow fruit’s coming through, complemented by soft and lingering vanilla and delicate honey. Water tames a bit of the spiciness bringing more vanilla sweetness and toffee to the fore. The finish is long, sweet and creamy with tender spiciness.
