Unveiled in 2014, the 15 Year Old Single Barrel Sherry Cask is a wonderful sight from Balvenie – single malt Scotch whisky fully matured in Sherry casks. sin These are released in batches of no larger than 650 bottles from a single cask, each one being hand numbered. Although no two casks are the same, and therefore won’t produce an identical single malt, the casks are carefully selected by Balvenie’s Malt Master and feature a consistent, rich, spiced character, complimented by hints of elegant oak.
