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.
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.
