The Balvenie Signature Aged 12 Years is a classic marriage of The Balvenie matured in the three most traditional cask types, first fill bourbon, refill bourbon and sherry.

Balvenie

Balvenie Distillery was built in 1892 in Dufftown. The distillery sits just in the shadow of Balvenie Castle. The Distillery was built by W. & J. Grant, owners of the Glenfiddich distillery. The distillery was fitted with second hand stills from Lagavulin and Glen Albyn distilleries. To this day Balvenie still does some of their own floor malting’s, about 5% of their annual needs. For the first 6 hours of the 48 hour drying process they use peat and the remaining 42 hours they use coal. This gives them a slight smoky flavor to their whisky. They say it is around 5ppm. (Parts per million) Balvenie has been owned by William Grant & Sons since 1892. The distillery has 5 wash stills and 6 spirit stills producing 5,600,000 litres a year. House Style: The most honeyish of malts, with a distinctively orangey note. Luxurious. Best after dinner.


Nose: malt and spice , cinnamon, wood and thick honey syrup. Sexy. Hints of “silane ” and dates in addition to nuts and cocoa powder. Palate : sweet stuff. Great sherry style shining through. Tannins are high. Golden syrup. Sultanas, chocolate cake , raisins some butter too. Finish : butter, vanilla, toast.

Balvenie 12 year old Apr 12, 2011
We found this scotch to be a good value for the price. The flavor was rich and deep and very smooth. Perfect on a cold winter's night.
