The Balvenie unveils triple cask range

A trio of Balvenie single malt whiskies, comprising a 12 year old, 16 year old and 25 year old, have for the first time been created exclusively for the travel retail market.

Produced by the Speyside distillery's renowned malt master David Stewart, the range marries The Balvenie matured in the three traditional types of cask – first-fill bourbon, refill bourbon and sherry, to precise recipes refined over time to ensure each captures the distillery’s distinctive style.

The three age expressions in the range all offer something unique: The Triple Cask 12 year old is elegantly sweet and spicy, with a mellow taste of dried fruits, vanilla and cinnamon; the Triple Cask 16 year old delivers a rich vanilla sweetness alongside hints of toffee and gentle oak; and the Triple Cask 25 year old is deep, rich and complex, with silky oak and spice and an exceptionally long and warming finish.

The Balvenie Triple Cask range, 40%ABV, will be available in airports worldwide from April 2013.
