The Balvenie 12 Year - The Sweet Toast of American Oak came from Apprentice Malt Master Kelsey McKechnie bright idea to import Virgin Oak barrels from Kentucky. After deep toasting them at The Balvenie Cooperage they were filled with Balvenie aged in ex-bourbon barrels.The result is a delectably complex whisky with notes of candied fruit, coconut and delicate vanilla.
NoseLusciously malty with some sweet fudge, followed by citrusy and oak vanilla aromas with layers of spicy oak notes of ginger and cinnamon
PalateCandied orange and lemon peel, vanilla toffee and butterscotch, layers of blossom honey, some melted brown sugar and oak spices at the end
The Balvenie Whiskies have a definite distillery character, all the whiskies are sweet with honey and vanilla notes. This distillery character is then nicely combined with flavours of different casks. The marriage of fruity flavours with the honey and vanilla makes Balvenie a typical Speyside distillery. The core range is large with the 12 years Double Wood as their leading Whisky, and the core range goes up to the 30 year-old. These Whiskies become even better as the sweet and soft tones are complemented with oak and darker flavours like leather or cigars.
