    TASTE
    Orange Zest Honey Sherry Rich Spicy Oak Dried Fruit Fruity
    DESCRIPTION

    The Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, crafts The Balvenie Forty by skilfully marrying together casks that have lain undisturbed in the warehouses for at least forty years. Different cask types impart different characteristics, bringing together a perfect harmony of fruit, spice, sweetness, citrus and oak to create a Balvenie of the very highest order.


    Bottle shown is from Batch 7, and is for illustration purposes only.

    KNOWLEDGE BAR

    In days gone by, the 'Dipping Dog' would have been employed by thirsty employees at the Balvenie distillery to pilfer whisky by lowering a cylinder into a cask. On retrieving it, its canny owner would have secured his haul by tightly sealing the opening with a cork.

    Then the precious contents would have been gently lowered down the employee's trouser leg by a piece of rope and tethered to his belt. The cylinder became know as a 'dog' on account of it being a man's best friend that, like its canine counterpart, was also kept on a lead by one's side.

    Today this ingenious contraption is utilised by the Malt Master, David Stewart when sampling an expression directly from the cask.
