The Balvenie 21 Year Old Madeira Cask is a rare single malt aged exclusively in traditional oak whiskey casks for more than 2 decades. It is then transferred to casks previously used in the production of fortified madeira wine for a further period of maturation. To ensure that just the right amount of character is imparted by the madeira casks, Malt Master David Stewart samples the casks regularly to ensure their final notes are characterized with notes of vanilla, oak and honey finishing with a luscious layer of rich spice.
• Nose—fragrant fruity and floral, orange blossom, fresh pineapple juice and a touch of spicy ginger finishing on some vanilla syrup.
• Taste—a lovely mouth feel with a real juicy edge, exotic fruit salad and barley sugar with runny honey, cinnamon spices and gentle oak vanilla.
• Finish—lingering and luscious, sweet and malty alongside swathes of vanilla and a spicy layer.
The Balvenie 21 Year Old Madeira Cask is a travel exclusive available at DFS at Singapore Changi Airport.
