Balvenie 9 Years Old 2005 - DCS Compendium Chapter 1
Created to celebrate the life’s work of malt master David Charles Stewart, the Compendium is split into five ‘Chapters’, each of which features five single cask whiskies from five different decades.
A different chapter will be released annually between 2015 and 2019, each of them reflecting a different chapter in the accompanying book, written by Balvenie global brand ambassador Dr Sam Simmons.
Chapter One unveiled 13 October 2015 at the Wallace Collection in London features liquid distilled from 1961 to 2009.
The theme of Chapter One is 'Distillery Style'. Chapters Two to Five will focus respectively on: 'The Influence of Oak', 'Secrets of the Stock Model', 'Expecting the Unexpected' and 'Malt Master's Indulgence'.
This is the youngest in the Chapter 1 collection and, in fact, the youngest Balvenie ever released and is a 2005 whisky matured in a refill American oak barrel which, despite being only nine years old has been released with much anticipation.
