Balvenie kommer med 3 aftapninger, der hver har tilknyttet en historie.
"The Balvenie Stories range is a collection of single malt whiskies representing tales of character, endeavour and craft. Each whisky produced by The Balvenie tells a human story, evolving with the protagonists and developing unexpected twists through years of maturation."

Balvenies hjemmeside ligger de 3 historier tilgængelig, fortalt af The Balvenie Global Ambassador, Gemma Paterson.

Den første aftapning hedder: The Sweet Toast of American Oak
Det er en 12 års aftapning. Ideen bag denne aftapning kommer fra Apprentice Malt Master Kelsey McKechnie. Kelsey har fået virgin oak barrels fra Kentucky, og disse er blevet deep toasted hos Balvenie Cooperage, hvilket skulle give en mere frugtig og søder aftapning.

Noter (Balvenie):

Nose Lusciously malty with some sweet fudge, followed by citrusy and oak vanilla aromas with layers of spicy oak notes of ginger and cinnamon.

Taste Candied orange and lemon peel, vanilla toffee and butterscotch, layers of blossom honey, some melted brown sugar and oak spices at the end.

Finish Rich and malty with gentle waves of oak vanilla and subtle spices.


Den næste hedder The Week of Peat og er en 14 års aftapning.

Distillery manager Ian Millar har bestildt en batch af Speyside peat til deres kiln. En uge om året producere Balvenie peated malt.

Noter (Balvenie):

Nose Gentle sweet peat smoke, lighter floral notes and delicate butterscotch honey.

Taste Velvety and round to taste with the peat smoke balancing citrus flavours, oaky vanilla and blossom honey.

Finish Gentle smoke with a lingering and creamy vanilla sweetness.


Den sidste er en 26 års aftapning med navnet A Day of Dark Barley

Til denne er der brugt dark roasted malted barley der for det meste er brugt til at brygge stout øl af.

Noter (Balvenie):

Nose Big malty notes, soft brown sugar, vanilla toffee, blossom honey and a mild oaky spiciness.

Taste Syrupy with a toffee sweetness, some citrusy notes of tangy orange peel, followed by oak vanilla and a touch of cinnamon and ginger spices at the end.

Finish Enduring gentle waves of vanilla and oak spices.
