OAK MARRYING TUN1509
To create Batch No.7 of the Balvenie TUN 1509, David C. Stewart MBE carefully hand-selected 21 of the finest casks- 4 ex- American barrels, 10 sherry butts and 7 sherry hogsheads- from the distillery's precious aged whiskies. These 21 casks have spent 3 months in a traditional marrying TUN, knitting together. Rich and deep, lots of exotic and elegant oak notes, followed by sweeter aromas of dried fruits raisins and dates, then a spicy outburst of ground ginger and some melted brown sugar. Rich and lush and slightly tangy with candied orange peel, lots of oak vanilla. Some golden syrup, layers of honeycomb, toasted hazelnuts with some spicy ginger and nutmeg to finish. Sweet and malty with oak vanilla and spices.
Tun 1509 is a large oak marrying vessel. The Balvenie liquid in each of the casks is carefully matured over many years and each
cask produces its own unique flavour profile which is defined by a number of different factors; the original distillation, the oak flavours derived from the cask and climatic conditions experienced in Warehouse 24.
