On their Golden Wedding anniversary, Nell & David Adcock decided to revisit Low Wood Bay where they had spent their honeymoon. Looking through their original wedding mementos, they found the final bill for their 4-night stay at the hotel – £20.16!

George, our Wild Boar Master of Malt is looking forward to our Balvenie Whisky Evening on 4th November when he will welcoming Brand Ambassador, James Buntin who will be sharing his vast knowledge of single malt.
The casks are so important to the taste of The Balvenie that they employ their own team of highly skills coopers. The balancing of the taste is critical – some casks need to be ‘toasted’, just enough to open the pores but not enough to burn too deep.
Balvenie Caribbean Cask has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ in casks that previously held Caribbean rum. The result is an exceptional single malt whisky with the traditional smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie, married with notes of toffee and a hint of fruit, with a warm, lingering finish.
NOSE: Rich, sweet and creamy toffee on the nose combines with fresh fruit notes
PALATE: Rounded with vanilla and sweet oak notes, with fruity character that develops with time
FINISH: Soft and lingering
