    DESCRIPTION
    Part of the Balvenie DCS Compendium Chapter 3, this single cask Speyside Single Malt whisky was distilled in 1961 and filled to a European oak Oloroso sherry hogshead on 14th June 1961. Aged for 55 years, each bottle is presented at a strength of 41.7% abv, in a European oak wood and brass frame, handcrafted by Sam Chinnery.

    The nose is sweet and honeyed, but with intensely fragrant rose petals, lavender, and a delicate spice. The palate is beautifully deep with soft brown sugar, toffee, butterscotch and lingering spicy cinnamon notes. The finish is floral and creamy with vanilla and spice.
    KNOWLEDGE BAR
    The complete Balvenie DCS Compendium, when complete, is five chapters long and comprises twenty-five single cask expressions and a book. The book itself, a collaboration between David Stewart and Dr Samuel Simmons, has chapters covering distillery style, the influence of oak, secrets of the stock model, expecting the unexpected and the Malt Master’s indulgence, with each set of whiskies exploring these themes.
