Balvenie 16 Year Old French Oak / Pineau Cask Finish Speyside Whisky-750ML
AGED 16 YEARS
The Balvenie French Oak is a vibrant single malt finished in casks previously held wine from the French Charentes vineyards.
Pineau des Charentes is a fortified wine made from unfermented grape juice, to which a Cognac eau-de-vie is added and then matured. Pineau us also found as a home-made product in the neighboring Deau-Sevres and Vendee departments.
The Balvenie USA brand ambassador Lorne Cousin suggested Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE explore these casks after a trip to the region with his family where he fondly remembers sipping an aperitif.
This is the first of The Balvenie finishes to explore French Oak. Pineau is akin to cognac in terms of production and flavour, allowing us to capitalize on the rise of this flavour profile and its premium credentials.
