The Balvenie French Oak 16 year old

This whiskey, which is a part of Balvenie's Cask Finishes line, was aged in French oak barrels that had previously housed Pineau des Charentes wine.

The DoubleWood 12 year old, Caribbean Cask 14 year old, and Portwood 21 year old whiskies are also part of the Cask Finishes series, which investigates the effects of secondary aging on whiskies. Since the introduction of the Caribbean Cask finish in 2013, this release is the range's first enduring addition.
Our tasting panel awarded these whiskies between 88 and 91 points.
