Balvenie 21YO Second Red Rose 48.1% 700ml


Balvenie 21YO Second Red Rose 48.1% 700ml

The Balvenie The Second Red Rose (48.1% ABV) is a 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky inspired by the occupant of Balvenie Castle, The Fair Maid of Galloway, Margaret Douglas.

King James, the castle owner, was enamoured with her beauty and thus allowed Margaret to reside there for the annual price of a single red rose. It is this wonderfully charming story that has inspired The Balvenie Second Red Rose. This elegant whisky has been matured for 21 years and finished in Australian Shiraz casks. Enjoy a unique single malt swirling with romance, a ripe fruit aroma, and gentle woody spice flavour notes that end with a lingering oak finish.

The Balvenie Stories collection celebrates human stories of endeavour and explores unexpected twists, as told by its craftsmen at The Balvenie distillery in Dufftown, Scotland.
