    2004 Balmenach 13 Years (IB: Hunter Laing) Old Malt Cask, Speyside, 50%, 70cl

    A 13 year old single malt from Balmenach, a distillery that you don’t see an awful lot of single malt from, as much of it goes into blends. However, indie bottlers like the Hunter Laing chaps do sometimes get their hands on casks of their single malt for us to enjoy! This is a 14 year old expression, matured in a refill hogshead. A release of 264 bottles.

    Distilled 2004 August
    Bottled May 2018

    Nose: Rather biscuit-y (think Custard Creams and Hobnobs), with tinned peaches and dried apricots developing.

    Palate: More vanilla-rich custard notes. Quite nutty, too.

    Finish: Orange pith, almonds and the last hint of vanilla bean.

    Overall: A creamy single malt from a distillery we don’t hear enough from.

As one of the most established brands in the single cask market, Old Malt Cask is trusted by thousands of Malt Whisky consumers all around the world as the selection which bottles some of the most noteworthy Scotches in the market.

    Each month, the Hunter Laing tasting panel reviews the company stocks and, after careful consideration, selects only the casks which are of the highest quality.

    Invariably bottled at 50% strength to maintain drinkability, each new expression is non-chillfiltered to ensure that the personality of each cask remains. Our expert blender also writes notes to guide the consumer through the tasting experience. We don’t have to do much with the whisky – we let it speak for itself.

    Old Malt Cask has spent fifteen years as one of the market leaders in the single cask category. As the reputation of Hunter Laing rests on the quality of each release, we aim to ensure that each new bottling delights the consumer as much as the last one.
