The Balvenie 30 year old is crafted by Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE using a selection of only exceptional casks that were laid down over 30 years ago. Marrying whisky aged in traditional oak whisky casks with that aged in European oak sherry casks, David creates a rich and complexity dram. Soft honeyed aromas with hints of candied orange peel and oak. Rich dark chocolate on the palate with hints of plum, marzipan and caramelised pear. A long lingering finish with a warming gentle sweet spice.
