The oldest of The Balvenie Single Barrel range, this spirit is bottled from refill American oak casks that have aged for over twenty-five years. Each bottling forms a limited edition of no more than 300 hand-numbered bottles drawn from a single cask. The Balvenie Single Barrel 25 Year Old is non chill-filtered and is bottled in batches so proof may vary.

Tasting Notes

"A peaty nose fades into hints of white pepper and lemon. This single barrel is richly spiced and sweetly honeyed — exactly what you’d expect from a Balvenie single malt aged in American oak. This Scotch has a long finish with notes of vanilla and caramel, before coming full circle for the tongue to find tastes of tobacco leaf and green wood."
