The Balvenie SherryOak 17 Year
The Balvenie // Speyside, Scotland
A rare release from The Balvenie in 2007, this whisky spent seventeen years in first-fill Oloroso sherry casks. Exclusive sherry maturation is uncommon for Balvenie, who usually prefers to finish its malt in ex-sherry casks to produce its DoubleWood series. The malt pays tribute to the Spanish origins of its cooperage in its own distinctly Scottish way. Bottled at 43% ABV.
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.
