DCS Compendium Chapter Three

Speyside distillery The Balvenie this month launched a 55-year-old single malt whisky, its oldest ever expression. It is part of the company’s DCS Compendium Chapter Three range. Five expressions are included in Chapter Three, each from a year “relevant to the evolution of The Balvenie”.

The 1961 expression is a “European oak Oloroso sherry hogshead” and is said to represent “the style of whisky The Balvenie distilled around this time”.

The rest of the set features whiskies from 1973, 1981, 1993 and 2004.

Each set comes with a signed second edition of The Balvenie DCS Compendium book, written by The Balvenie global ambassador, Dr Samuel J Simmons.
