Single Malt Scotch Whisky 15 Years And Under Trophy – International Wine & Spirits Competition 2016
"A really rich and honeyed nose with stem ginger, Rich oak Madagascan vanilla. All of these notes are turned up on the palate with the addition of Manuka honey and a hint of spiced mandarin juice. Beautifully oily and lengthy finish with a hint of spice and candied orange peel."

"Built by William Grant of William Grant & Sons in 1892, less than 10 years after he built the Glenfiddich distillery. It is said to be the only distillery in Scotland that grows its own barley, uses traditional floor maltings and keeps a coppersmith and a team of coopers on site. The name Balvenie means “village of luck”.
Aged in European oak sherry casks and new oak casks, this whisky is mellowed in Glenfiddich’s Solera Vat, a large oak tun inspired by the sherry bodegas of Spain and Portugal, which has been kept half full of whiskies since 1998. This whisky has aromas of heather honey, vanilla fudge and rich dark fruit. It is full-bodied with flavours of sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon, ginger and a lingering sweetness to finish."
