    Balvenie Stories series: A Day of Dark Barley

    For any fine liquor, stories are half the experience. Balvenie clearly understands this, and has released a single-malt series inspired by storytelling. Each bottle comes an NFC-enabled tag on the bottle so drinkers can be serenaded by the whiskies' stories – recordings between the craftspeople and the brand's global ambassador; and guided audio tastings with malt masters David Stewart and Kelsey McKechnie. The apex of this series is "A Day of Dark Barley", a 26-years-aged expression that's distilled from dark roasted barley malt for a syrupy, smokey, dram with hints of citrus and sweet spices.

    Available at bars and retail spaces including La Maison du Whisky, Straits Clan, The Connoisseur Divan, The Joint, The Wall,1855 and 75CL.
