"Through the winding paths and steep Speyside hills to a glorious moor of heather. This is the story of what would fondly come to be known as The Heather Trials, and how the people behind them helped create the first-ever expression of The Balvenie made entirely with ingredients grown on its Dufftown estate."
The Edge of Burnhead Wood is n°6 in The Balvenie Stories, a series of whiskies endorsed by key figures from The Balvenie Distillery. The first three expressions - 12YO The Sweet Toast of American Oak, 14YO The Week of Peat and 26YO A Day of Dark Barley - came from the hand of Kelsey McKechnie, Ian Millar and David Stewart.
Through an NFC-tag, whisky enthousiasts could discover specially recorded audio-conversations and a guided whisky tasting of their Balvenie Whisky. These recordings are also available as a podcast.
And while you are sipping one of these tasty drams from The Balvenie, you can enjoy the book Pursuit: The Balvenie Stories by Alex Preston.
This 19-year-old whisky being numbers 6 means there are at least two more missing links in the story.
- Official bottling from The Balvenie Distillery (Speyside)
- Alcohol:48.7% ABV
