Limited edition single malt whisky returns to the US

Calling all distinguished tipplers — Speyside purveyors of handcrafted single-malt scotch whiskey The Balvenie is setting the 6th release of its rare 1401 Tun expression and it’s headed for The United States. The award-winning distillery in Dufftown, Scotland will release 2,500 bottles of this rare batch which is made of a mix of whisky matured in sherry and American oak casks from the 60s, 70s, 80s and early 90s. According to esteemed Balvenie Malt Master David Stewart (who happens to be Scotland’s Longest Serving Scotch Malt Master), Batch #6 will be “a little bit less sherried” than Batch #3, which was the other 1401 Tun released in the US, and promises sweet and rich overtones. Its launch follows Batch #5, which was destined for the UK and European markets only. Out of the 2,862 bottles released in July, only but a few remain. Batch #6 of the Balvenie 1401 Tun will be available in most states nationwide. (If you decide to pick up a bottle you may want to pick up a pair of these to wear while you responsibly enjoy it).
