The Balvenie Stories Old Sweet Toast American Oak



The Balvenie Stories: Sweet Toast American Oak 12 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky is aged primarily in ex-bourbon casks and finished in toasted Virgin Oak barrels imported from Kentucky. Inspired to produce an even fruitier, sweeter Balvenie, Apprentice Malt Master Kelsey McKechnie had the bright idea to import Virgin Oak barrels from Kentucky. After deep toasting them at The Balvenie Cooperage they were filled with Balvenie aged in ex-bourbon barrels. The result is a delectably complex whisky with notes of candied fruit, coconut and delicate vanilla.
Best enjoyed neat, on the rocks or with a splash of water.
Handcrafted to be enjoyed responsibly.
