Tun 1509 Batch 4 Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml
The Balanvie, located in Speyside, Scotland, is a distillery of tru tradition. They still grow their own barley and use with a traditional malting floor, the last of its kind in the Scottish Highlands. The distillery's resident coppersmith maintains the stills and the team of coopers ensure each barrel is in perfect condition. Of course, the Malt Master, David Stewart presides over the all-important maturation process, working to find ways to improve each and every drop. The follow-up to the distillery's incredibly popular Tun 1401, the Tun 1509 is produced by using a larger marrying tun. Using only 32 casks - 23 American oak casks and 9 European oak Sherry casks, marrying for a few months before being bottled, this is a deep, rich and luxurious dram.

About the brand
Founded in 1889 and since its inception, offering a truly unique and definite sweet, honeyed flavour, Balvenie whisky has long since secured its place in the hall of Scottish whisky fame. Indeed, Balvenie is one of the most famous names in the world of whisky. Its distillery is capable of producing over 5.5 million litres of spirit a year - amazing considering the fact that every element of production takes place on site. Balvenie grows its barley on land adjacent to the distillery buildings, has an active malting floor and makes casks in its very own cooperage. Balvenie came into existence thanks to William Grant, a Scotsman who founded the distillery in 1889. Grant was inspired to build a new distillery in order to help his other distillery at Glenfiddich to meet customer demand. Glenfiddich had opened half a decade earlier and its whisky was proving very popular, so he decided to renovate the nearby estate of Balvenie House. Much to Grant’s delight, his new distillery was an instant success. At this stage, much of the whisky produced at Balvenie House was used within the highly popular Grant & Sons range of blended whiskies and it continued as such for almost a century. It wasn’t until the 1970s that single malt releases became common. And this was when Balvenie really came into its own. Balvenie gained fast popularity with its sweet, creamy and rich character. Indeed, the demand for their single malt led Grant & Sons to build another distillery next door with Kininvie beginning production in 1990. Today, both Balvenie and Glenfiddich concentrate on meeting consumer demand for their single malts, with only a small percentage now going to Grant's blends. Balenvie remains under the ownership of the Grant family, making William Grant & Sons one of the longest single family distilleries in the world. All Balvenie whiskies are deliciously sweet with honey and vanilla notes. Their marriage of fruity flavours with the honey and vanilla makes them typical Speyside expressions. With a large core range, the sweet tones are often complemented with oak and deeper flavours such as leather and cigars. As you can imagine, the Balvenie award cabinet is heavy with marks of acclaim. To cover just a single year – in 2006, Balvenie took home the following gold medals from the International Spirits Challenge: Founder’s Reserve 10 Year Old, Double Wood 12 Year Old, Balvenie New Wood 17 Year Old, Port Wood 21 Year Old, Balvenie Thirty and Balvenie Port Wood 1991. This is the biggest gold medal haul for any brand in any one year since the competition was launched.

This is astounding. Next to each other with Macallan Uncommon Barrel and the Balvenie just barely comes out on top. I should do a visually impaired trial. I am really drinking cluster 3 however it isnt leaned to survey.

Amazing... For what reason do we waste time with Macallan? Genuinely great yet not for the bluff hearted. This is a whisky that merits regard...

* Sydney Balvenie whisky tasting night 26 April 2018. Whisky #5. Nose: Ironbark nectar malt apple save with cloves and cinnamon warm Anzac bread rolls (Google it if youre not an Aussie) and a resinous string of oak with some anise sneaking in the corners. A substantially more grain and gritty nose than some other Balvenie Ive attempted with a whiff of sulfur (which I didnt mind‚ it just included an out of control soil note). Sense of taste: A radiant appearance of chewy fragrant oak. Vanilla and flavors (ginger cardamom cinnamon) shortbread secured with milk chocolate. Dried organic product compote. A complex multi-faceted improvement with heather nectar red fruits raspberries more flavors (ginger) and some more established weathered oak. A salivatingly firm massive mouth-covering surface. Finish: Long long long. Ginger flavor sweet malt adjusting oak tannin. Some lighter fruity notes show up. It remains with you easily. I was shocked by how unique this whisky was to everything that had gone before it. Less of the great Balvenie profile - woodier and strong all through. Another member said she was amazed how extraordinary this was to the Cluster 3 articulation which had more juicy qualities. I delighted in it a lot and believed it to be the best whisky of the night. The multi year old Port Wood was not a long ways behind however this had more multifaceted nature and was interesting as opposed to well disposed. Its a very costly whisky however justified despite all the trouble in the event that you have that kind of discretionary cashflow. Excellent : 4.5 stars Addendum: There was a sixth articulation in the flyte however I cant show it on Distiller. It was a hand-drawn barrel test of multi year old Balvenie given to us by the brand minister. Matured only in top off whiskey and about 45% abv it is one of the fixings in the Tun 1509 Group 4 and was staggering. The nose was incredibly an arrival to the multi year old doublewood with new products of the soil nectar and vanilla yet in addition with an obvious development however scarcely any oak character. The sense of taste‚" well it resembled drinking fluid gold and likely the most smooth whisky Ive ever tasted. Envision a whisky that preferences practically like melomel and youre arriving. It had something of a similarity to Good country Park 18."
