Originally a Travel Retail exclusive, The Balvenie Triple Cask range is matured in first-fill American oak barrels, traditional refill casks and first-fill Oloroso Sherry butts. This particular 16 year old shows off a lot more vanilla and fruit than the 12 year old Triple Cask.
Why you ask? Simple because the extra years spent in the casks also bring out plenty more fragrant, oak-y spices. Expect a sweet and spicy from this one.
