Description
 
90 Points - Whisky Magazine
The Balvenie Distillery was established in 1893 and to this day has remained dedicated to preserving the tradition, care and craftsmanship of malt whiskey production. It is the only single malt Scotch whiskey distillery that still grows and malts its own barley, has the only traditional working floor maltings in the Scottish Highlands, and has coopers to tend all the casks and a coppersmith to tend the stills. In the making of The Balvenie Portwood, the Malt Master, David Stewart, carefully selected rare reserves of Balvenie that had been matured for 21 years in traditional oak casks, and transferred them to port casks for a few months. This enhances and further refines the single malt while still preserving its original characteristics.

On the nose, The Balvenie "Portwood Finished" 21 Year Old offers aromas of ripe fruit, raisin and peat smoke, backed by notes of toffee and toasted almond. The influence of the port cask is especially noticeable on the palate, where it mingles with complex flavors of peat, honey, anise and marzipan. Notes of spice, cedar and walnut appear on the long, smooth finish.
