Balvenie 1972 DCS Chapter 2 Description

Part of the Balvenie DCS Compendium Chapter 2, this single cask Speyside Single Malt whisky was distilled in 1972 and filled to a European oak Oloroso sherry butt on 31st October 1972. Aged for 43 years, only 43 individual bottles are available worldwide and each one is presented in a European oak wood and brass frame, handcrafted by Sam Chinnery.Malt Master David Stewart said ‘The 1972 refill sherry butt may have lost some of the flavours we expect from sherry casks...but it really shows a unique character of The Balvenie. Very few examples like this remain in our warehouses and I love it!’

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.
