K&L Notes

According to the producer, Balvenie's apprentice malt master Kelsey McKechnie had the idea to import virgin oak barrels from Kentucky. After a deep toasting at the Balvenie cooperage the barrels are filled with Balvenie that had aged in ex-bourbon barrels. Tasting notes: "Lusciously malty with some sweet fudge, followed by citrusy and oak vanilla aromas with layers of spicy oak notes of ginger and cinnamon. Aromas of candied orange and lemon peel, vanilla toffee and butterscotch, layers of blossom honey, some melted brown sugar and oak spices at the end. Rich and malty finish with gentle waves of oak vanilla and subtle spices."
