The Balvenie - Tun 1509 - Batch 1

The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 1

Tun 1509 showcases the rare skills Malt Master David Stewart has acquired over a lifetime of dedication to his craft. To create the first batch of Tun 1509, David carefully, hand-selected 42 of the finest casks from the distilleries aged stocks. The liquid—a combination of 35 traditional American Oak barrels and seven European oak sherry butts—was then rested for several months in Tun 1509, a unique marrying vessel, to create a single malt greater than the sum of its already precious parts. This limited release is hand-bottled at 47.1% ABV.
