A 2013 addition to The Balvenie's range, as a younger sibling to the 15 Year Old single cask. This is exclusively matured in first-fill bourbon casks and each bottle is part of a batch that is at most 300 bottles - all taken from the same cask.

    Sweet and spicy. The best choice among the 12Y whisky

    Guy Jones,

    I'm hard-pressed to give more than three stars to this expression, despite my enthusiasm for the Balvenie brand, and, for distillery owner William Grant & Sons. This dram featured loads of alcohol-tinged heat, up front, which overshadowed any other flavors that might be tasted. Vastly inferior, in my opinion, to the excellent, five-star Balvenie 14 Caribbean Cask expression.

    Absolutely fantastic! I tried this at a bar in the US and it was instantly one of my favorite Scotches. The flavors were just a delight. The finish was my favorite. Pairs well with a steak!

    Great way of showing the full power of the American Oak casks. I found the sweetness to be slightly overpowering with this one and I wish there was a little more oaky pepperiness to add to its complexity. But my friends love it, and I love serving it to them. The hand numbered bottle leaves great impressions.
