Balvenie 23 Years Old 1993 - DCS Compendium Chapter 3
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.
The theme of Chapter Three is 'Secrets of the Stock Model'. Chapters Four & Five will focus respectively on: 'Expecting the Unexpected' and 'Malt Master's Indulgence'. Created using five casks which will exemplify David's skill in managing a complex stock system: a science, an art and a craft.
Filled on the 6th December 1993 and aged for an incredible 23 years until being bottled on the 19th June 2017 from a single cask. This release comes in a heavy weight frame which is made from cherry wood. A unique fruitwood with a smooth straight grain pattern.
