Richard's favourite expression is The Balvenie PortWood. He knows American oak from European by touch. He's not superman. But he has been reviving bourbon barrels and sherry butts for over half his life. This wood is what slowly breathes character into The Balvenie. That's how important it is. So day after day is spent caring for the casks that control time. Hammering and punching to repair: charring and burning to rejuvenate. It took years working out how everything goes together. But now he knows what holds the future. Handcrafted to be enjoyed responsibly. The Balvenie Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 43% Alc./Vol. ©2013 Imported by William Grant & Sons, Inc. New York, NY.
