Available in very limited quantities, the new addition to The Balvenie 17 Year Old range is finished in casks that once held Madeira Wine. With deep, luxurious aromas that translate into an equally rewarding flavor of spice and dried fruit, this rare expression has already received a rating of 90% from Malt Advocate magazine.

The Balvenie 17 Year Old Madeira Cask was launched over two exquisitely crafted evenings at New York’s Eleven Madison Park Restaurant. Guests, including members of the press and influential industry figures, as well as invited Warehouse 24 members, were treated to a tasting of the entire range, culminating in a first taste of the new Madeira cask.

Our Malt Master, David Stewart, whose signature appears on each of the Balvenie bottles, enthuses on this aspect "The Balvenie's high quality is down to the traditional way of making malt whisky... it's this seamless transition through generations of creativity and craft that has preserved The Balvenie’s consistency in producing such delightful drams."
