Description

The distillery says - "The Balvenie French Oak is a vibrant single malt finished in casks which previously held wine from the French Charentes vineyards. Pineau des Charentes is a fortified wine, made from unfermented grape juice, to which a Cognac eau-de-vie is added and then matured. Pineau is also found as a home-made product in the neighbouring Deux-Sèvres and Vendée départements. This is the first of The Balvenie finishes to explore French Oak. Pineau is akin to cognac in terms of production and flavour; allowing us to capitalise on the rise of this flavour profile. A departure away for our core range the ABV will be 47.6% and non-chill filtered appealing to the changing consumer taste profile for single malt."
