The Balvenie Scotch Single Malt 21 Year Portwood

The Balvenie Scotch Single Malt 21 Year Portwood 750ML     
Sku: 7646

To create The Balvenie Portwood, rare 21 year old Balvenie which has been matured in traditional oak casks is transferred to a port cask, or pipe, which has held fine port wines. Here it is sampled every month by The Balvenie Malt Master to ensure that just the right amount of character is imparted by the port casks, enhancing and developing the single malt, whilst preserving its original characteristics.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points (Mar 2012)
Intense and complex with scents of roasted nuts, dried red fruits, toffee, marzipan, and caramel with hints of cedar and clove filling the nose. Creamy and lush on the palate with a warming Port influence. Graceful whilst bold and generous.
