New Balvenie whiskies heading your wayFebruary 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.
