I am not 100% sure, but I believe it is only "officially" sold at the distillery.

to make matters worse for trying to get this bottle, it was not only just for sale at the distillery, but you could only buy a bottle, if you went on the balvenie tour at £30-£35, there wasnt many bottled, and what they did have didnt last long, they only way youll get one it ebay, kruger or a specialist whisky site and expect to pay a high price for it.

just to run salt into the wounds, my bottle of bavenie rose looks rather lovley sitting on the shelf.

to be honest, im starting to loose interest in my collection these days, havent bought a bottle for the collection for quite a while now and starting to think about getting rid of my whole collection, (about 600 large bottles of single malt distillery own bottles) if i do decide to do so, ill give you a shout.

I just returned from the Spirit of Speyside Festival, and can confirm that bottles of Balvenie Rose are still available for £100 to participants of the Balvenie Tour. Being a Balvenie fan, I couldn't help myself and picked one up :D

any chance in you posting a picture of the bottle you got, especilly the front label.

reason i ask is last time i was up there, couple of months back, was told they had no more, but heard through the grapevine that someone had bought a bottle recently, your the second ive heard about getting one of late.

so, my thinking is one of two things, they had some aside they forgot about, or, as someone told me, that theyv'e done a second rose cask.

personally, i hope its the latter as another single cask bottling of balvenine is alway welcome, and if so, hopefully itll be easy to tell the difference between asny such editions.

thanks for the pics, just as i thought, its a diffrent edition.

i got my bottle a week or so after they started this rose thingy on the tour and mine has been bottled at 53.4%

apart from the strength, i cant see a single differance on the labels.

Looks like they went back on what they said at the start when they did bottle it of it being a one of single cask expression.

thanks again for the pictures btw

I picked mine up on May 5th and they seemed to have lots of stock.

As mentioned above, I believe you have to take the Balvenie tour in order to buy one.

I took the tour but was running close to empty on the financial front by that time. God, I wanted one of those. :(
