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."

I love this whisky...

My bottles: 27/04/93 - 06/06/08, 12/01/94-24/03/09, 08/12/93-12/02/09.

Have two more but not with me at the moment. I know I know, excessive!

In Cask Date 11/10/94

Bottling Date 19/11/09

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.
