Scottish Highlight: Balvenie 21YO Portwood

Ah the Finer Things in Life!

In order to blend a bottle of this 21 Year Old masterpiece, the Balvenie product is poured into port casks, or pipes, which have previously been the storage units for fine port wines in the past. This enables the flavours or the fine wine to remain preserved in the wood, while not over powering the natural flavours of the whisky. It is also chill-filtered from the start  and bottled at a high strength alcohol than the finished product. Enabling the impurities to burn off and have the final product remain at the right alcohol consistency.

 With its distillery based in Dufftown on Speyside, in Scotland, it is easy to see that tradition is valued throughout the entire process of making this fine Whisky. Visit their companies website to read more about their family and their fine Scotish whisky!
