A Rare Discovery from Distant Shores, is a beautifully well-rounded spirit with accentuated flavors of ripe fruit and the classic citrus Balvenie style, with a long-lasting finish. This new edition is inspired by the time that The Balvenie Malt Master David C. Stewart’s long-time friend, John Barrett, brought some samples of Caroni Rum to the distillery. In 2014, David decided to move some 20-Year-Old Balvenie from its traditional American oak casks into the ex-Caroni Rum casks, to give the whisky a rum finish unlike any other.
The Balvenie Stories range is the embodiment of these chronicles: tales of character written in whisky, bringing life to history of bold endeavours and extraordinary twists. Each whisky is crafted with passion and has its own luxuriously smooth taste, underpinned by the distinctively honeyed character of The Balvenie.
