    The third release in The Balvenie Stories range is a particularly rich and exciting 26 year old expression,  A Day of Dark Barley. This expression harks back to 1992, when Balvenie mashman Brian Webster and maltman Robbie Gormley took in a delivery of dark barley, kicking off a long experiment. Dark barley isn't a common sight in the whisky world; it is usually used to brew beer. This is an exceptional whisky; syrupy with a toffee sweetness, some citrusy notes of orange peel, followed by oak vanilla and a touch of cinnamon and ginger spices at the end. Lovely waves of vanilla and oak on the finish too.
