An incredible whisky produced by and in honour of Malt Master David Stewart’s 50th year with William Grant’s. Bottled from cask 5576, a European oak sherry hogshead, at natural cask strength, it’s been around at Balvenie as long as David and has almost learned as much.
It is a 1962 Vintage bottled in 2012.
Nose: Fragrant and floral with fruit and oak lusciously intermingled. Citrus notes of lemons and orange peel are followed by honey and vanilla and finally a gentle hint of cinnamon and subtle oak.
Taste: Velvety sweet and wonderfully soft, fruit and citrus notes are accompanied by a beautiful outburst of cinnamon and nutmeg and a subtle back note of honey, all balanced with oak
Finish: Velvety smooth with a delicious citrus sweetness.
