Balvenie 2001 DCS Compendium 17 Year Old Chapter #5

Balvenie was built by William Grant in 1892 and remains part of his family's company to this day. In the early part of its history, its purpose was primarily for the provision of malt for Grant's blends, however following the global success of Glenfiddich, the Balvenie single malt brand was launched in 1973. It remained a rarity though, and it was not until the opening of Kininvie in 1990, and later Ailsa Bay in Girvan, that the distillery was given the freedom to focus on its single malt. Today it is one of the best recognised brands in the world. In 1993 they launched the 12 year old "DoubleWood," an expression credited with pioneering the use of cask-finishing, and this has become a key motif for the distillery's output in recent times.

This bottle forms part of the fifth release of the five-part DCS Compendium, which is a tribute to renowned malt master, David Stewart. Each chapter contains five casks selected by David himself.

The Chapter 5 releases were bottled in 2019. This one is a 2001 vintage matured in single cask #9325. Filled on 25th April 2001, this is one of 400 bottles.
