The Balvenie 50 is a cask of Scotch that is aged 50 years. Why? Ask Malt Master Dave Stewart why it took so long to finally get around to bottling Cask #5576.
Fifty years later, Stewart has become a consultant to the company, and that cask was finally bottled. We were lucky enough to attend an event at Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills honoring Stewart’s fifty years of contributions to the Scotch whisky industry as well as taste the whisky that was five decades in the making.
