The Balvenie 50 Year (Cask 4567)
The Balvenie // Speyside, Scotland
Filled with newly distilled spirit in 1963, The Balvenie Fifty, Cask 4567 was matured in a European oak sherry hogshead cask. Individually filled at The Balvenie Distillery into hand-blown glass bottles, The Balvenie Fifty is presented in a special wooden case built by Scottish craftsman Sam Chinnery. Each case consists of forty-nine wooden rings and a closing layer in brass, which echoes the fittings of the distillery’s stills and spirit safes. Bottled at cask strength of 45.4% ABV, just 15 bottles of this rare limited release are available in the US.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
