Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky

    Shy at first, muesli, oak, the white bottoms of green/spring onions and then more fruit: raspberries, blackberries, and a slightly sour malty note with pepper and shiraz-like wine notes emerging.

    Honey and bittersweet fruits. Very drying ¾ of the way through, finishing with impressions of oak, egg noodles and newspaper.


    A unique profile among the Balvenie family of malts (Founder’s Reserve, DoubleWood, 15yo, 21yo Port Wood) that once again brings to our attention the seemingly infinite diversity of scotch whisky, not just from region to region or distillery to distillery, but often between two bottlings from the same distillery. Subdued and oaky, this dram will lack excitement for many, but it is a well-constructed and unique Balvenie whose charms lie beyond superficial initial examinations.

    Is this a 12 year old? Perhaps it is prepared just like the Doublewood: 12 years in former bourbon oak casks and then finished for an additional 6 to 9 months in a former port oak casks.

    I agree with the others. This may be the best of all the many great offerings from Balvenie. I made the mistake of sharing it with friends at Holiday time. It took a while to find another bottle. I purchased the only two my distributor had. No more sharing.

    I love honey tones and sweetness at the finish. It's simple and not too complex. I'm not the pro, but this one of my favorites for my evening dram with black tea.

    Just tracked down the sucker, delicious. Succulent...not enough superlatives to describe the taste and I am not a pro. I found it sharp in the mid tongue area and really creamy and honey like on the edges. I bought two bottles and am very happy.
