New Balvenie whiskies heading your way

February 20th, 2009

In addition to the new Balvenie Golden Cask (14 year old Rum Wood Finish) introduced to Travel Retail, there are two new additional Balvenie whiskies headed our way over the next two months.

I spoke with the U.S. brand manager yesterday and she told me that Batch #2 of  Balvenie Signature will be coming out next month. And in April, a new Balvenie 1978 Single Cask will be released.

One of the William Grant traditions is to have various people or organizations help select the vintage releases of Glenfiddich and Balvenie. This new vintage was chosen by members of the International Bee Keepers Association (tying in the signature honey notes found in Balvenie).

I’ll be posting up my review of the Golden Cask soon (and comparing it to the recent Balvenie 17 yr. old rum cask finish). And when I get samples of the two new releases, I’ll let you know my thoughts on those too.

    I’m hoping that the continued increase in price of the Balvenie Vintage Casks will be abated somewhat with this release. However, after the $14,000 they were asking for the Limited Edition at the Hong Kong airport and the $1,000 bottle in Paris I’m not getting my hopes up too much.
