Balvenie’s Malt Master David Stewart MBE has expertly marries 31 casks to create a unique expression of craft with the Tun 1509 Batch 3. Following in the footsteps of the Tun 1509 Batches 1 and 2, The Balvenie Malt Master David Stewart MBE has now presented Tun 1509 Batch 3.
To create the much-anticipated Batch 3 of Tun 1509 – which will be limited to just 8,850 bottles worldwide with 835 in the UK – David drew on his extensive knowledge and expertly hand-selected 31 of the finest casks from the distillery’s precious aged stocks. He used 12 sherry butts distilled between 1989 and 1992, 11 American oak hogsheads distilled in 1989 and eight refill American Oak butts distilled in 1992 and 1993.
Commenting on the release of Tun 1509 Batch 3, David Stewart MBE said, “We have been overwhelmed by the positive reception and recognition that Batches 1 and 2 of Tun 1509 have received from the industry. We hope this limited release of Batch 3 will be received in a similar fashion as it possesses those familiar Balvenie characteristics that made previous batches so popular.” Higher strength at 52.2% and non-chill filtered, Batch 3 of Tun 1509 will be bottled in May and start appearing on shelves in the UK from 1st July 2016 at an RRP of £260.
