Balvenie 1963 Single Cask 50 Year Old #4567
The following lot is for a truly stunning single cask from Balvenie.
This is the first time David C Stewart has created a fifty year old marriage using some of Balvenie's oldest and rarest casks. Marrying casks which have passed 50 years in age, with varying tastes and liquid strengths, requires the application of all the skill and expertise David has amassed during his 55 years experience as The Balvenie Malt Master.
This incredible malt was distilled on 28th May 1963 and laid to rest in cask #4567 before being bottled on 20th March 2014.
From the Balvenie website: Fifty years on, the whisky in Cask 4567 has matured into a beautiful single malt with a deep reddish hue and exceptionally full taste, characterised by dark fruits and spice. It’s a wonderfully complex and elegant single malt; a perfect example of whisky aged for many years in European oak.
The bottle is presented in a beautiful wooden hand carved cylindrical case created by Scottish designer and craftsman Sam Chinnery.
Bottle 96 of 131.
