The Balvenie Stories 'Second Red Rose' 21-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Inspired by the history of Balvenie castle, this whisky celebrates the story of 'the rose', an exquiste red rose with a magenta hue that was used by the Earl of Douglas' widow to pay rent to King James II.
The Second Red Rose is finished in Australian Shiraz casks, for an elegant dram brimming with notes of fresh, ripe fruits and delicate spice, and an astounding red colour.
Nose: Intense ripe fruits combined with robust earthy tones, reveal the mouth-watering fragrance from fresh mango and subtle oak
Taste: An initial burst of blackberry and ripe peach sweetness, conceal flavours of vibrant oak and cracked black pepper leaving a gentle woody spice
Finish: Lingering oakiness
