In a bold exploration of flavors and tradition, The Balvenie introduces its 16 Year French Oak Single Malt—a vibrant offering matured to perfection in casks that once cradled the renowned Pineau des Charentes wine from the esteemed French Charentes vineyards. Pineau des Charentes, a cherished fortified wine, is birthed from the union of unfermented grape juice and the spirit of Cognac eau-de-vie, and is lovingly aged to achieve its unique profile. This wine, with its roots also in neighboring Deux-Sèvres and Vendée, serves as an exquisite foundation for this Scotch.
The inception of this blend traces back to The Balvenie's USA brand ambassador, Lorne Cousin. Inspired by a memorable sojourn to the French Charentes region with his family, where he relished the Pineau as an aperitif, he proposed the idea to Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE. Thus began The Balvenie's journey into uncharted territories, marking their inaugural exploration with French Oak. As Pineau resonates with the essence and sophistication of cognac in production and palate, this innovative finish by The Balvenie taps into the escalating appreciation for such profiles, underscoring its premium stature.
Color: Lustrous gold, reminiscent of the French sun-kissed vineyards.
Aroma: Intricate layers of dried fruits, vanilla, and subtle hints of French oak intertwine. Palate: A harmonious blend of rich malt, fruity wine undertones, and a delicate touch of spice.
