Tun 1509: Batch 1 is an amazing expression from Master Blender David Stewart for The Balvenie.

This dram is comprised of an immense 42 casks – 35 American Oak and seven Sherry. If that has not blown you off your seat, wait for the nose: honey, fruit, vanilla – and that’s just the beginning. After the first sip, you get spicy notes; pepper, clove and cinnamon – plus all the initial fruit and sweetness – before it settles perfectly, rolling off the palate for a pleasant finish of oak.
