What happening at Balvenie? part 2

Postby orangedogofglory » Sat Jan 03, 2009 4:55 pm

Anyone else notice the packaging change coming out of Balvenie? Its a minor change - the use of red in some fonts (ie the number 15 in the 15 YO Single Cask) and slightly different graphic layouts (ie 12 YO DW). Also, the 21 YO PW box slightly changed (esp. look at the inside).

Any reason for this? Just mixing things up?

Also - any other word on the Balvenie 14 GoldenCask? John Hansell indicated it is hitting travel retail in Feb 09 - but I wonder how wide it will be distributed. I'd like to get my hands on one or two but being in the US it isn't the easiest.

The Golden Cask is now available in travel retail.

I have seen it in several airport in Europe in the Duty Free shops.
