Description

Story No.3 - The Balvenie - 26 Year Old - A Day of Dark Barley.

The Balvenie has released a series of three new single malts "The Stories."  Stories are told about the releases that show very different character, not only in writing, but also in "Audiobooks". These stories can be listened to for example on the Balvenie homepage and they will also be available as podcasts.

The three bottlings in the series are: The Week Of Peat, A Day Of Dark Barley and Sweet Taste Of American Oak.

This whisky was born as an experimental one when Malt Master David Stewart had the idea to use extremely dark roasted malt to make whisky, which is otherwise used to make dark beer. Maltman Robbie Gormley and Mashman Brian Webster remember the summer day of 1992, when the malt arrived at Balvenie. From this dark malt the 14-year-old roasted malt was already released and now follows the 26-year-old A Day Of Dark Barley, which has 47.8% ABV to offer.
