What is Tun 1509?
•A large oak marrying vessel which sits proudly in The Balvenie distillery’s Warehouse 24.
Nose : Sweet flavours from baked citrus tarts entwine with aromas of orange marmalade and maple syrup.This subtle zing is perfectly wrapped in a sweet nuttiness and overflowing spices. Rich and deep, lots of exotic and elegant oak notes, followed by sweeter aromas of dried fruits raisins and dates, then a spicy outburst of ground ginger and some melted brown sugar.
Taste: An unmistakable texture flows over the palate, rich, toffee sweetness, buttery vanilla and a swirl of house honey form the perfect sip. The initial sweetness from the perfectly toasted oak, dispels to reveal layers of candied ginger, a hint of cardamom and ground spices.
Finish: Oaky and everlasting.
