Product Description

A very rare flat decanter style bottling of this 18 year old Balvenie Classic. Complete with the original box which is in near mint condition. A very desirable bottle for the Balvenie collector

Originally launched sometime in 1982 with both a non aged and 18 year old version available and was also the first whisky to be "finished" to be given an additional period of maturation in a second cask of a different type, here Sherry butts were used.

So David Stewart (Malt Master at Balvenie for over 50 years) could claim to have invented and started the whole cask finish craze?

A piece of Scotch history as well as an innovation that was not fully appreciated at the time.

Featured in Ian Buxton's 101 legendary whiskies you're dying to try but (possibly) never will book.
