Since The Balvenie released their first Tun, it has been a top contender within their line-up. It’s a showcase of Balvenie Malt Master David Stewart’s whisky magic and the last installment of the Tun 1509 series. The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch No. 8 is a marriage of four ex-bourbon barrels, six second-fill sherry butts, five refill puncheons and three first-fill sherry butts, so it’s quite the polyamorous relationship! The famed Tun is, in the words of The Balvenie, ‘a large oak marrying vessel that sits proudly in Warehouse 24’. The tube of this release shows a complete list of all the casks that went into this batch.
