Filled 3rd October 1990
Aroma: Rich and deep, elegant oaky notes followed by sweet aromas of raisins, dates and gentle ginger spice.

Finish: Sumptuous with a sherried sweetness.
DAVID C STEWART MBE – THE BALVENIE MALT MASTER
„The 1972 refill sherry butt may have lost some of the flavours we expect from sherry casks, dried fruits and spice, but it really shows a unique character of The Balvenie, spicy but less ‘winey’ sweet, more honeyed sweetness. Very few examples like this remain and I love it.“
