'Class in a glass'.
To create The Balvenie Portwood 21 Year Old, rare 21 Year Old Balvenie - which has been matured in traditional oak casks - is transferred to a port cask, or pipe, which has held fine port wines. Here it is sampled every month by The Balvenie Malt Master to ensure that just the right amount of character is imparted by the port casks, enhancing and developing the single malt, whilst preserving its original characteristics.
At this year's International Spirits Challenge, The Balvenie Portwood 21 Year Old was awarded a prestigious Gold Medal.
In 2004, it received a trophy for 'best single malt 12 years and over' at the International Wine & Spirits competition, being described by the judges as 'class in a glass'.
A single malt of refinement and remarkable character, it is creamy and silky with fruit, honey and spice notes, and has a long and gentle nutty finish.
