Description

The Sweet Taste of American Oak was the brainchild of one of Balvenie’s newer members of staff. Apprentice Malt Master Kelsey Mc Kechnie wanted to further examine the influence oak has on their malt. So what better way to examine its effects than to use unused casks made with American oak? As Rioja lovers have tasted, American oak imbues a sweet vanilla layer to the liquid stored within. And so the team went to visit the Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky, to source their new casks. In the US, the insides of the casks were toasted over open white oak fires to release the wood’s vanillins. Once in Scotland, they get another toasting at the on-site cooperage, before being filled with Balvenie. A sweet, fruity and subtly spicy dram.
