Liquor Review Notes:
The Balvenie Distillery takes its name from Balvenie Mains--the fields that gave the whisky its grain--and Balvenie Castle, both figuring in the history of the British Isles. It officially founded in 1893 by William Grant and it still grows its own barley from the 1,000 acre farm. The scotch is made with local spring water, lightly peated, and fermented in the unique "Balvenie ball" in the copper pot still that is mean to "concentrate and sweeten" the flavors. Balvenie has its own cooperage to maintain its casks.
The Balvenie 15yr Single Barrel scotch is, as the name suggests, bottled at "barrel strength" giving it a higher-than-customary proof. It is matured in a single, whisky cask. Each bottling is considered a limited edition of "no more than" 350 bottles, each one hand-numbered. These annual expressions are considered "unique and unrepeatable."
