Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Chocolate and raspberry aromas, with rich brioche and stewed cherries.
Palate: Fresh red fruits - cherries and raspberries - combine with sponge-cake mix and cinnamon and a sprinkling of black pepper. Quite a big-flavoured dram, but balanced.
Finish: Sweet spice, red fruits, rich sponge cake.
Nose: Sweet fruit and oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.
Palate: Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours – nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry.
Finish: Long and warming.

Really didn't enjoy this whisky, too sweet and unbalanced. Left quite a nasty after taste on the palate. I always try things at least twice so I hope my experience with this whisky will be better.
A wonderful single malt.
Great stuff... Got given a bottle for Xmas. . Although I'm relatively new to the single malt club this is now my favourite, bottle is almost gone, just enough to see in the new year ??
it was nice, and that's it. no disrespect to other opinions and i like to think there's an 'edge' to every dram of good whiskey. with the B 12dw it just feels like it's....there. ok, thanks, see u next year then..
Honestly this is a Whisky you have to buy, smooth citrus honey and light oak:) a must have!!!
Sharp, sweet and pretty dull to me. No value for money.
Balanced, with a lovely honey finish. A typical Speyside Whisky, from an excellent distillery.
Very very nice.
I''m just getting into whisky. And of the few I''ve tried this is one of the better ones not too harsh and no after burn, which puts some people off whisky. Like I said before just getting into whisky and I''d say price was about right.
The sherry cask gives this bags of character. I could quite happily while away an evening with a friend and a bottle of this. Enticingly quaffable.
