1 bottle Balvenie 1979 - 1991. Scotch Malt Whisky Society 40.4. No box. 75cl. 59.8%. Level in neck. Good condition.

From the archives. 'Famous as a propriety bottled malt, having been one of the very few to have been bottled as full strength before the advent of the Society. Pale colour from a plain oak cask. Nose of young grass, peardrops and meadowsweet. The whisky is spirituous and requires to be subdued by water to render it drinkable - whereupon it most curiously exhibits a strong taste of honey, yet is perfectly dry.''
