26 Year Old Day of Dark Barley

Balvenie, 26 Year Old Day of Dark Barley

RRP £625

Dark barley sounds ominous, but this is the barley usually used in the brewing of stout. Back in 1992 mashman Brian Webster and maltman Robbie Gormley took in a delivery of dark barley, kicking off a long experiment. Luckily that experiment worked beautifully. Expect a sweet tinned fruits nose, while the palate is big and fruity with lots of texture. Floral notes hang on the end of a lively whisky with a little oak and tannin on the finish.
