BALVENIE TUN 1509 - BATCH 1
After 9 successful batches of the much sought after TUN 1401 Balvenie have decided to enlarge their marriage vessel. 4 times as big as TUN 1401, 1509 has been designed to keep up with high demands.
To create the first batch of TUN 1509, Malt Master David Stewart carefully hand-selected 42 of the finest casks – 35 traditional American oak barrels and seven European oak sherry butts – from the distillery’s precious aged stocks. All were transferred to TUN 1509, which sits in Warehouse 24, for several months before bottling. This is a rare interpretation of the marrying process and allows all 42 casks to come together to create a unique expression of The Balvenie that’s greater than the sum of its constituent parts.
Presented with a chart with diagram details of main taste characteristics of each of the 42 casks that were married together in the making of TUN 1509 Batch 1.
