THE BALVENIE TUN 1509 BATCH NO.4
We welcome the much anticipated 4th batch of Balvenie Tun 1509! A hugely popular series of expressions from Balvenie, named after the tun in which the whisky is married for three months before being bottled.
The Tun lays reference to a process whereby The Balvenie’s David Stewart MBE showcases his knowledge of the ageing stocks by selecting a range of unique casks and marrying them over a period of time before bottling.
For the 2017 release, The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 4, David C Stewart MBE carefully selected 23 casks – 13 traditional American oak barrels and 10 European oak sherry butts – from the distillery’s precious aged stocks.
All were transferred to Tun 1509, which sits in Warehouse 24, for several months before bottling. Tun is a rare interpretation of the marrying process and allows our most mature casks of various vintages to come together to create a unique expression of The Balvenie that is greater than the sum of its constituent parts.
