The Balvenie “A Day of Dark Barley” 26 Year Old (47.8% abv)


The Balvenie A Day of Dark Barley 26 YO is an interesting story… literally. It’s a part of The Balvenie “Great Stories Series.” In July of 1992, a batch of over-roasted barley was delivered to The Balvenie. Dark-roasted Barley like this is commonly used to create Stout Beers. Sometimes it’s referred to as “chocolate malt.” That day the distillery embarked on a twenty-six year long experiment aging in ex-Bourbon casks — transforming the chocolate malt into a Single Malt Whiskey unlike anything else that ever came from The Balvenie before.

The arrival at the distillery of a batch of dark roasted malted barley, more commonly used in the production of stout, marked the beginning of a 26-year long experiment. The result was a pleasing depth – smokiness and oakiness as well as the classic honey, vanilla and citrus flavours.


NOSE  Big malty notes, soft brown sugar, vanilla toffee, blossom honey and a mild oaky spiciness.

TASTE  Syrupy with a toffee sweetness, some citrusy notes of tangy orange peel, followed by oak vanilla and a touch of cinnamon and ginger spices at the end.

FINISH Enduring gentle waves of vanilla and oak spices.
