For the facts uk NAMED AFTER the oldest surviving part of our distillery, WAREHOUSE 24 is reserved for malt whisky enthusiasts who’d like to get a little closer to The Balvenie and the craft of whisky making.
Like each of our expressions, the exceptional quality of the 12 Year Old Single Barrel begins with the unparalleled craftsmanship retained by our distillery.
This younger sibling to Balvenie’s 15 Year Old single cask is exclusively matured in first-fill bourbon casks.
Each bottle is part of a batch that is at most 300 bottles – all of which are taken from the same cask.
The sample I purchased comes from the first cask to have hit the British market. Quite cereally, with a big candied sweetness: pear drops and lemon candy. It’s not all sweetness though, as the new-sawn oak and accompanying spices (cinnamon, ginger) are clearly present.
I can only assume it was deliberately kept simple and aimed at ‘single cask beginners’, hence hollowing out the single cask concept a little. We proudly still grow and malt our own barley, employ a coppersmith and our own team of coopers to tend to our casks and have in our service the longest serving Malt Master in the industry.We're proud to share a rare piece of our collection with you, and we hope that you'll make it a part of yours.
