The Balvenie Twenty-five – Aged 25 Years – 48% ABV non-chill filtered of natural colour:
Extraordinary depth; the perfect balance to create the most elegantly fruity expression. In a flawless marriage, Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE brings together individual casks to craft an incredibly intricate and balanced expression; exemplifying the art and skill of Traditional Oak Tun Marriages with liquid from European and American casks. A whisky of exceptional character, Twenty-Five hints at The Balvenie’s most sought-after flavours - bold vanilla oak, crystallised ginger and sweet runny honey.
Presented in a case of rich burgundy colour that graduates to a lighter ombré hue, the colours represent the evolution of flavours in the marrying process. Rings of white gold foil represent each year of maturation.
NOSE: Soft autumn fruits, runny honey, crystallised ginger and raw cane sugar. An underlying rich oakiness creates complexity and structure.
TASTE: Bold vanilla flavours with layers of toasted marshmallows, fresh fruit terrine and cinnamon infused apple tart.
FINISH: Exceptionally long-lasting sweetness.
