The Balvenie Single Barrel 15 Year: World’s Best Single Malt Scotch Under $100?

By Matt Goldstein & Amy K. Haight

Earlier this year, in our first double blind single malt scotch trials, the Balvenie Single Barrel 15 Years aged crushed the competition across the board and it wasn’t even close.  Facing off against the likes of Macallan, Glenmorangie, Oban, Highand Park, and more, the Balvenie unquestionably stood apart.  Since then, we’ve tasted this scotch again and again and it simply keeps performing like a champion.  Aged in a single cask of no more than 350 bottles for a minimum of 15 years, the Balvenie Malt Master selects only the casks which have the essential characteristics of the Balvenie Single Barrel style.  With a complete malty scent, the Balvenie 15 Year is sweet, with hints of vanilla, cream, citrus, fruits, honey, and oaky notes.  The Balvenie 15 is rich, complex, sweet and full bodied.  Smooth, silky and buttery, this single malt is simply one of the best in the world.  Each cask of the Balvenie imparts slightly different flavor as our new limited edition bottle from the Balvenie Road Show is slightly different than the one which stole the show at our taste test.  Surprisingly in fact, we believe it to be even better.  From the moment that the traditional oak cask is filled it remains undisturbed and every year, the Malt Master hand selects each barrel that meets the required maturity.  With supreme confidence, the Balvenie Single Barrel 15 Year Single Malt Scotch comes with our highest recommendation.  This single Malt must be considered top 3 for any single malt scotch bottled at under $100.

    Yo Matt, Are you able to get some nice bottles of scotch for cheap. One of my managers is a scotch feen and needs a hookup.

    I usually just get it for free for sampling purposes, from companies that are nice enough (and smart enough) to bless me. I’m not really sure about getting it wholesale.
