Tested Whisky by sponce
Details of collection
This Balvenie was matured in old sherry and bourbon casks. It makes this scotch interesting but also mild. The orange flavour and a deep sweetness make it a true gem among malt whiskies.
For years the 15-year-old Revival had been one of the most popular bottlings from Glendronach, but it is now discontinued because the distillery had been mothballed from 1996 until 2002. Stocks are dwindling, and prices have already gone up.
The classic Lagavulin is kilned with a high smoke content in the malt. The stills are pear-shaped, so that all flavors can be passed on to the condensers during distillation. The single malt then matures in bourbon and sherry casks to completion.
