Footnotes

  • On the 6th September 2002 our last cask from the 1950s, Cask 191, was emptied for bottling and only 83 bottles of precious liquid were forthcoming at a strength of 45.1% abv ~ the smallest ever release of The Balvenie. This sherry cask had lain in our warehouse since the 26th January 1952. The lengthy influence of both sherry and oak produced a single malt with a complex nose, intense with toffee, marzipan, sweet oak, raisins and nuts. The depth of flavour is remarkable, developing from butterscotch sweet to clover honey, liquorice and chocolate elegantly balanced with drying oak and spice.
    2002年9月6日,在1950年代裝桶的最後一桶酒,即191號木桶,全都清空裝瓶,只得出83瓶珍釀,酒精度為45.1 %,是百富出品裡有史以來度數最低的。該雪莉桶自1952年1月26日起就儲放在我們的酒庫裏,經歷雪莉與橡木的悠長影響而產出的單一麥芽威士忌具複雜的香氣,太妃糖、杏仁蛋白糖、甜橡木、葡萄乾和堅果的風味濃烈。口味的深度非凡,從奶油糖果到三葉草蜂蜜、甘草和朱古力,跟乾橡木和香料有美妙的諧協感。
