Description

Balvenie Distillery is a distillery of William Grant & Sons in the heart of speyside just a few hundred steps from the famous Glenfiddich Distillery.

It was established in 1892 after converting an 18th-century mansion, Balvenie New House into a distillery. They started production with two old stills from Lagavulin Distillery. However until 1971 Balvenie didn't have a distillery bottling, but only supported WGS blended whiskies.

Balvenie whiskies has a definite character with balanced sweet and spice profiles. Balvenie 12 DoubleWood is one of those superbly balanced whiskies showcasing the balance between ex-Bourbon casks and Sherry casks in maturation.

A sweet start to nose develops into vanilla and citrus from Bourbon cask and turns into dried fruits from the Sherry. Palate is well rounded with a good body, sweet tones and approachable spices. Dried fruits with winter spices creates lovely palate.

A must buy for one to observe the craft of maturation and finish in different cask types.
