Product details

The Balvenie Stories range was released in early 2021, and this is the introductory release from the series, called The Sweet Toast of American Oak. The range was created to spotlight events and people in Balvenie's past and present.

This one celebrates apprentice malt master Kelsey McKechnie, and her (very good) idea to import virgin oak barrels from Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky, and deeply toast them at the distillery's cooperage. Balvenie's ex-bourbon oak aged whisky was then filled into said casks for a finishing period. The result is a sumptuously sweet, vanilla-forward Scotch single malt.
