THE BALVENIE REVEALS BATCH 8 OF THE ACCLAIMED TUN 1509 SERIES

The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 8 typifies Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE’s unparalleled experience in marrying rare and precious casks from The Balvenie’s aged whisky stocks

December 2021: The Balvenie Single Malt Scotch Whisky has today announced the release of the eighth and final bottling in the distinguished and much-revered Tun 1509 series: The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 8.

Continuing the legacy of the highly collectable Tun ranges – Tun 1401 and Tun 1509 Batches 1-7 – the exclusive expression further exemplifies the unrivalled expertise of Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE in marrying rare precious aged stocks, acquired throughout his lifetime of the craft.

Expertly hand-selected by Stewart, each drop of Tun 1509 Batch 8 encapsulates 18 of the finest and most rare casks from the distillery stocks, married together in the Tun – a large oak marrying vessel that sits proudly in Warehouse 24. A careful and complex process of art, the rare technique of marrying the liquids provides the optimum environment for Tun 1509’s composite qualities to mix. An expression of exemplary quality and unique character, the final liquid is a non-chill filtered whisky, which has been left to marry for three months, producing a remarkably rich expression, that is intense in flavour thanks to long maturation in ex bourbon barrels, second fill sherry butts, refill puncheons and new sherry butts.

Presenting sweet flavours of baked citrus tarts entwined with aromas of orange marmalade and maple syrup on the nose. This subtle zing is perfectly wrapped in sweet nuttiness and overflowing spices. To taste, an unmistakable texture flows over the palate, rich toffee sweetness, buttery vanilla and a swirl of house honey forms the perfect sip. The initial sweetness from perfectly toasted oak, dispels to reveal layers of candied ginger, a hint of cardamom and ground aromatic spices to create a remarkable drinking experience.

Commenting on the release of Tun 1509 Batch 8, David C. Stewart MBE says:

“The Tun 1509 series draws to its completion with Batch 8. This Batch is a remarkable marriage of casks which result in a deep and rich Balvenie. To taste we have a rich toffee sweetness, buttery vanilla and a swirl of the house honey style – layering to candied ginger and aromatic spices”

The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 8 will be available for purchase in the UK for RRP £330 (52.2% ABV) from Clink*, Master of Malt and Selfridges.
