In the picturesque hills of Speyside, in the shadows of the towering Balvenie Castle, there's a prestigious distillery that produces breathtaking Spirits. Using the cleanest water and their own barley, the Balvenie distillery employs unique state-of-the-art stills called Balvenie Bowls, and creates some of the most unique and exclusive Whiskies on the market. And it's the stills that make all the difference. Due to their special shape, vapors mix before they enter the head.

That's where the Balvenie PortWood Finish 21 Year Old was also made, but since the Balvenie guys and gals don't settle for ordinary, they asked their own cooper Ian McDonald to craft traditional oak casks. The Spirit is aged for at least 21 years and inherits lovely notes of soft oak, honey and caramel. Then, another extra-mile thing happens: the Scotch is matured in barrels that used to house Port Wine. No wonder the lavish fruity aromas and marzipan flavors won the Whisky the Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2009 and 2012.

Deluxe, delightful, divine.

Eric
Eric,
My favorite scotch ever. I love how it’s got a mild, yet interesting flavor from the port barrels. Throw in a couple of ice cubes to chill it and it really opens up.

Michael,
This is my favorite single malt scotch I’ve tasted to-date. I like my whisky on the sweet side with a smooth mouth feel and long, smooth finish. This one is all of that and more. I am generally drawn to Speysides due to their absence of smokiness and I’m particularly drawn to whiskies that are aged in casks previously used for another wine or spirit. If you want to splurge or give a gift for a very special occasion, this is your bottle.
