The Balvenie PortWood 21 Year Old whisky is a true masterpiece that exemplifies the art of cask maturation and the impeccable craftsmanship of The Balvenie distillery. This expression showcases the harmonious marriage of two distinct worlds—the rich heritage of Scottish whisky-making and the luscious influence of port wine casks.
Matured for 21 years in traditional oak casks, this whisky is then transferred to ex-port wine casks for an additional period of aging. The result is a remarkable depth of flavor and a captivating array of aromas.
As you bring the glass to your nose, you are greeted by an enchanting bouquet of ripe fruits, rich oak, and a delicate sweetness. The luscious notes of berries, plums, and dark chocolate intermingle with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, creating an inviting and complex aroma.
