Balvenie tun 1509 is David Stewart's new and larger plaything following the success of marrying tun 1401. The 1509 is now providing its third release! For this batch 3 he selected 12 Sherry butts with vintages varying from 1989 to 1992, 11 American oak hogsheads filled in 1989 and 8 refill American oak butts from 1992 and 1993. These were married for several months. Included with this bottle is a sheet with graphical representations of the flavour profile of the whisky from each of 31 casks used!
Nose: fine aromas of wood, dried fruits and spiciness of cinnamon and ginger
Palate: sweet, elegant honey notes merge with mellow vanilla and intensive wooden, spicy notes as well as the aroma of dark fruits and sherry.
Finish: Medium-long, dry oak sets in with additional sherry fruit finish. Rich lingering spice.
