The Balvenie 30 year old is a rare single malt, for which only exceptional and really old European and American oak casks are used. The resultant union creates a rich, mellow whisky with unusual depth and complexity.
On the nose, it is silky smooth and honeyed, with mellow oaky tones and hints of candied orange peel. The taste is deep with rich dark chocolate, hints of plum, marzipan and caramelised pear. The finish is exceptionally smooth and warming with gentle spice and lingering sweetness.
