New to Lukas Wine & Spirits, The Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch #6 (49.8% ABV)!
“The Balvenie Tun 1401 takes its name from the traditional wooden tun in which it is married. Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, first experimented with the marrying tun in 2010, when he selected small samples of The Balvenie from six of the distillery’s most precious casks. He then left them to spend a few months getting to know one another in the oak vessel and, as he expected, the resulting malt proved to be even greater than the sum of its parts. This first batch of The Balvenie Tun 1401 was only available at the distillery and was highly prized by many. Now this rare Highland single malt whisky is available world-wide but in a limited release.” – per The Balvenie
2012’s Release Batch No. 6
“Tun 1401 is the Balvenie’s traditional oak marrying vessel and is cared for by the distillery’s onsite team of coopers. The 6th Batch to have rested within is fragrant, fruity and malty on the nose with barley sugar sweetness and soft vanilla. The taste is sweet at the start, followed by a luscious explosion of tangy citrus and gentle spices. Mouth-filling honey combines with vanilla syrup and hints of oak tannins. The finish is rich with a lingering sweetness.” – per Balvenie’s Malt Master, David Stewart (bottle)

Last year the cases we received of the Tun 1401 did not last long when the whisky collectors found out and these bottles will be snatched up fairly quick so we urge you to act fast. There will be a max limit of two bottles per person.
Much thanks to the Lukas Wine & Spirits customers for making us a the #1 retailor of The Balvenie Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky portfolio in all of Missouri.
