The third installment of The Balvenie Fifty: Marriage series. Showcasing The Balvenie’s malt master David Stewart’s rich knowledge and unique skill, this is a rarely attempted marriage of the most precious, most mature stocks in The Balvenie Distillery. David’s latest achievement, this incorporates new casks from the five used in the Marriage 0197, released in 2019. The final liquid is bottled at 46% abv, and is free from chill filtration and colouring. A marriage of seven casks of varying degrees, the casks comprise both American and European Oak.
Every bottle of The Balvenie Fifty: Marriage 0614 is presented in a luscious wooden canister, created using elm trees found at the grounds of The Balvenie Distillery. It also includes a gold-plated certificate and bottle glorifier, inscribed with the full array of tasting notes.
The nose has deep dark spices, rich fruit cake, elegant oak, and sweeter aromas of dried fruits, raisins, ginger, and sultanas. The palate is rich and lush, with bitter chocolate, hints of honey and intense spice. The finish is rich and mouth coating with sweet and oaky spiced notes.
