In 2009 The Balvenie released a scotch that is an impressive addition to their fine whiskies, a 17 year old finish-aged in Madeira casks. It is a scotch for those who enjoy the softer side of a Speyside accented with the intriguing characteristics of Madeira wines. As appealing as it sounds, there is a catch: as many of my favorite scotches go, this is a limited edition bottling. Though while it's around it is worthy of a taste and is a great predictor of what a whisky can become with a little Madeira thrown into the mix.
The pack also features notes about the unique flora and fauna of the island, which echo the distinctive flavour of this delicious whisky – comes highly recommended!
