Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch No. 5

400.00

TUN 1509 replaced the earlier TUN 1401 and is an annual release of vatting of casks in Balvenie’s TUN 1509. Compared to TUN 1401, TUN 1509 is four times the size. It’s a NAS whisky but rumours are saying no whisky are younger than 22 years old in TUN 1509, as it was it TUN 1401. 

TUN 1509 batch 4 became “famous” for some of the first bottled bottles contained whisky that was not meant for this release. Those bottles were sent to Israel, Netherlands, Switzerland and Sweden. The Balvenie asked people who bought the “faulty” bottle to return it. We have yet to hear from anyone that actually did return it!

Previous batches of TUN 1509 gave a total of around 8500 bottles, and we therefore of course expect the same amount of total bottles in batch 5. Allocations vary from country to country but the UK usually receives around 700 bottles. - drampedia 

The fifth batch in the famous Tun 1509 series from the Balvenie, this Speyside single malt is a marriage of single casks hand-selected by Malt Master David C. Stewart and brought together in the eponymous Tun, a traditional oak marrying vessel. Each release is limited to just a few thousand bottles worldwide. This latest batch is presented at a strength of 52.6% abv. 

The nose is incredibly rich and fruity. the palate brings a burst of spice before a deep sherry influence. Dried fruits linger with elegant oak notes in the finish.
