Balvenie 21 Year Old Portwood
To create The Balvenie PortWood Aged 21 Years, a marriage of rare Balvenie is transferred to port casks, or pipes, which have held fine port wines. It is sampled regularly by The Balvenie Malt Master to ensure that just the right amount of character is imparted by the port casks, enhancing and developing the single malt whilst preserving its original characteristics The result is an exceptional single malt whisky with the traditional smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie, married with notes of toffee and a hint of fruit, with a warm, lingering finish
A perfume of fruity and ripe raisin notes, backed by a nutty dryness.
Refined with remarkable character, it is creamy and silky with fruit, honey and spice notes.
Long, gentle, nutty.
