A limited edition Scotch whisky, The Balvenie Madeira Cask 17 Year Old, has been released by distiller William Grant & Sons.

Matured in oak and finished in casks previosuly used to hold Madeira fortified wine, The Balvenie Madeira Cask is the latest in a series of six 17-year-old, limited edition whiskies by Balvenie master disiller David Stewart.

The new single malt Balvenie will be available "for a limited period" worldwide from September, priced at around GBP69.99 and with an abv of 43%.  

Stewart said: "The 17 year old whisky extracted some wonderful rich spice and distinct raisin flavours from the Madeira cask, which we hope malt enthusiasts will enjoy discovering in the glass."

Last year, William Grant released The Balvenie Rum Cask 17 Year Old, as part of the same series.
