Product description

Product description
For the 16-year-old Balvenie French Oak, American oak casks are used for maturation. The Single Malt is then finished for several months in barrels in which wine from the French Charentes vineyards was previously stored. Pineau des Charentes is an enriched fortified wine. This is made from unfermented grape juice and blended with Cognac eau-de-vie, passing fruity notes with gentle ginger spice to the whisky as it is matured in these casks.

ent: Balvenie French Oak 16 Years is a distinguished single malt that exemplifies the artistry of oak maturation. Opening with a bouquet of honeyed sweetness and delicate floral notes on the nose, it invites further exploration. The palate is rich and velvety, offering layers of vanilla, toffee, and a hint of cinnamon spice, all balanced by the subtle influence of French oak, which imparts a refined complexity. The finish is long and warming, with lingering notes of dried fruits and a gentle oakiness that leaves a lasting impression. This expression from Balvenie is a testament to craftsmanship, delivering a sophisticated and harmonious whisky experience.

Ein toller Whisky, voller runder Geschmack und langer Abgang, lassen ihn nur langsam verhallen. Leider nicht ganz billig, aber ein tolles Erlebnis. Sollte in keiner Sammlung fehlen.
