The release and launch of the Balvenie Fifty: Marriage 0614 is a whisky half a century in the making and the third in an acclaimed series of unique expressions of exceptional quality.
It is a skilful marriage of seven fifty-year-old casks by The Balvenie Malt Master, David C Stewart MBE. Marrying casks which have passed 50 years in age, with varying tastes and liquid strengths, requires the application of all the skill and expertise David has amassed during his 59 years’ experience as The Balvenie Malt Master.
