Balvenie Portwood 21 is the expression of one of Speyside's most prestigious distillery, Balvenie, which has matured from oak barrels for 21 years and then added an additional touch (finish) by taking Port wine into casks that have been aged for 30 years.

I examined the maturation process in detail. “Whiskey & Ripening” You can learn more about this subject by checking out my article!

Balvenie Portwood 21 (Scottish Single Malt, 40% abv)

Nose: Full fruity scents such as orange, peach and grape are accompanied by honey, hazelnut and oak.

Palate: Intense oak, cinnamon, caramel and toasty flavors are added to the fruity flavors we get on the nose. Quite creamy and easy to drink.

Finish: A dry, long finish with honey, hazelnut and bitter flavors.

Comment: With its full fruit and spice flavors, Balvenie Portwood 21 is literally a "classy" whiskey.
