The Balvenie Fifty: Marriage 0614
The Balvenie // Speyside, Scotland
The Balvenie Fifty: Marriage 0614 is the third and final installment in this series. Like the two previous editions, this was crafted by malt master David Stewart. He blended rare single malts which were aged for 50 years or more in both American and European oak casks. The single malt drawn from the American oak casks were the same casks used for Marriage 0197, but the European oak casks were new and make up 36% of the blend. The whisky is presented in a wooden tube made of 50 layers (48 elm, 2 brass) and includes an etched brass certificate and bottle glorifier. The decanters are 100% hand-blown crystal. Available globally in limited numbers as of September 2020.
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.
