Balvenie 15 Sherry Barrel Bottling Note

Unveiled in 2014, the 15 Year Old Single Barrel Sherry Cask is a wonderful sight from Balvenie - single malt Scotch whisky fully matured in Sherry casks. These are released in batches of no larger than 800 bottles from a single cask, each one being hand numbered. Although no two casks are the same, and therefore won't produce an identical single malt, the casks are carefully selected by Balvenie's Malt Master and feature a consistent, rich, spiced character, complimented by hints of elegant oak.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Dense Christmas cake with icing, full of sticky, syrupy dried fruits, cherries, finely chopped nuts and grated nutmeg. Flamed orange peel, ginger, a hint of struck match (but only very subtle in the sample we tasted), fresh orange segments and plums develop.

Palate: Big old fashioned Sherry matured character, more bread-like fruitcake, malt loaf and nutty Oloroso. Slightly bitter and rum-like, superb.

Finish: Spicy fruitcake with cocoa.

Overall: Classic Sherry matured whisky, really top stuff.

Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Barrel Sherry Cask Reviews

good stuff

Very tasty with slight boldness. Heavy fruits.
Won’t go wrong. A great keeper

Clear identity. Memorable. Gentle (fits better than subtle) hone-like overall character. Closest I can think of is a really fine nougat.

A wonderful scotch. Has a definite, memorable identity. Soft honey notes. Like a fine nougat, gentle citrus. Long finish. Liquorice maybe.

Brilliant

I'm exited. I open, and wow the smell is intense. I taste and wow. So rich, sherry heavy, so fruity, nutty, christmas cake, sticky syrupy. Maybe a sticky toffe pudding. My god my taste buds have just orgasmed. Wow. 3 finger drams later....

Top stuff

First it's important to mention there are two versions of this: first-fill sherry and second (or re-fill) sherry - and you will not know until you see the color, and even whern you do you still won't be sure. I think I have a first fill as it is quite dark but I've seen ones darker than mine so who knows? Point is, flavour is great.

Nose is typical sherry, mouthfeel is nice and rich, palate is great lots of fruit with a bit of spice, and finish has a really nice peppery oakiness to it but not overdone just rounds it off well. It reminds me of a much improved Macallan 12 sherry oak and is really a very nice whisky. If you like sherried whiskys it is a no brainer, if you don't it's still well worth your time as it is not as intensely sherried as some other sherry bombs so would suit those less inclined. Very nice, and definitely benefits from the higher abv and non-chill filtration - wish Balvenie did more in this vein.

Great!

When I first opened it, I did not like it very much. I just left the bottle right on my table. After one week, I gave it a try. Wow!

Exquisite

Love the Balvenie line and received this as a gift. Delicious.

Fave!

One of my favourites! Outclassed a couple of more expensive bottles with a group of Scotch lovers. Very bummed that it can't be imported at the moment. May have to move!

Lovely Dram

Great stuff unless you get the refill bottle (lighter tone)

Some thing is awry.

Good, but the mouthfeel is unnerving!
Maybe the quality of the barrels is not there?

Fantastic sherry flavor but with a light body

For so long I did not try this because I thought it was the same as the Balvenie 15 year single barrel. I finally noticed the difference and tried a sample. On my gosh! This definitely has some wonderful sherry flavor, and a sweetness, but unlike most sherry it is very light. Very nice fragrance, great flavor, and a soft finish like a sweet kiss.
