Description

THE EDGE OF BURNHEAD WOOD 19YO

The Edge of Burnhead Wood is the fourth release in Balvenie’s Stories range, and again we find the distillery in Speyside in an experimental mood. This is a 19 year old single malt which has been made entirely with ingredients grown on Balvenie’s Dufftown estate, including home-grown barley, water from the Robbie Dhu spring, and even fresh heather from the eponymous Burnhead Wood. The heather was dried, dampened and then put into the kiln during the malting – which Balvenie’s global brand ambassador Gemma Paterson investigates further in the podcast that accompanies this release. The result is a fascinating single malt, packed with honey, dried blossoms and fragrant oak.

TASTING NOTES

NOSE Lively and vibrant, this balvenie has notes of fig And geranium oil perfectly balanced with fresh herbal undertones reminiscent of green woodland.

TASTE Flavours of honey, cloves and caramelised baked dates are layered on top of delicate citrus and spice. The Sweetness reveals an underlying oaky dryness.

FINISH Lingering, oaky, dried blossom.
