Hi, I seen an earlier post on this somewhere but as a new user on here I cannot find it. Anyway I have a Balvenie single cask 15yr old which was casked in Oct 1989 and bottled in June 2008. This is 18yrs and 8 months Can any one beat this one ? ?
Hi, I've sent a PM at Balvenie for the same question as you.
The response: "You have chosen a fine bottle of our whisky and I can assure you that is quite normal to find an older whisky in your bottle. Our Malt Master, David Stewart, will sometimes use an older whisky to produce a perfect quality whisky, usually he uses a 15 year old cask as the youngest."
So while not a bottle that has the 'bonus' age of some listed in this thread - still a beautifully drinking whisky from the honey and vanilla nose that greets you upon pouring to the warm peppery mid-length finish. This is a winner.
