Triple Cask is a departure from Balvenie’s popular Double Wood and definitely exceeds the high standards set by its older brother. As you may have guessed the term ‘triple cask’ refers to the use of three casks, but how does that work? Well it is just that simple. Balvenie that has matured for 12 years in the three most traditional types of cask – first-fill American Bourbon, refill American Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry casks is then “married” (mixed together) in a large wooden vessel known as a marrying tun. The ‘Triple Cask’ then finally matures for another 6 months in the tun. The result is a stunning blend of flavours, nose and colour that mixes, vanilla and orchard fruit with cinnamon spice, custard creams and oak. Definitely one to savour on its own.

The nose reflects colour. Elegant, aromatic, smooth and sweet with layers of honeycomb and spice, followed by exotic dried fruits, apricot and honey, vanilla yet cinnamon and hints of raisins and sponge cake.
The palate follows on from the nose. Definitely fruity with sweet oranges, green apples, apricot, with oak, cinnamon, layers of green tea and mint. Right at the end, tea and custard creams.
Warm, mellow something to savour. Sponge toffee. light pepper, oaky with burnt marshmallow for sweetness.
Great drop. Amazing value for the 1L bottle! Certainly a safe ‘go to’ option.
