Proof66 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 Cask 191 Balvenie is a 50 year old scotch all bottled from one single barrel laid down on January 26, 1952. That cask was poured into 83 bottles in 2002. It is widely regarded as one of the world's most expensive scotches (hat tip to the write-up at Forbes). According to The Whiskey Place, the finish on this exceedingly rare $16,500 bottle is "Orange skins, lemon grass, Lightly peaty balancing dryness"  As if the price weren't intriguing enough already.
