Balvenie Signature 12yo replaced the fondly-remembered Founders Reserve 10yo as the staple in the distillery's range. This is a marriage of Sherry, Bourbon and Refill casks and, as always with Balvenie, it's a polished, mellow whisky to relax with.Tasting Notes (3)
- Dried Fruit
Tasting Notes from whisky-pages.com (Gavin D. Smith)
Rich and malty on the nose, with characteristically insinuating notes of spice, dried fruits, vanilla and honey. Becoming increasingly floral, with soft toffee and a hint of sweet Sherry as it warms in the glass.
Full-bodied on the palate, yet with classic Balvenie smoothness and grace. Vanilla, honey, Sherried cinnamon, nutmeg and a whiff of smoke merge beautifully. The finish is long with spicy oak. A great whisky. David Stewart has performed his magic once again!.
Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky
Not unlike the 10yo Founder's Reserve (discontinued come 2009) in its restrained richness with orange oil, honey, a touch of smoke, and a slight sherry influence of dried fruits.
Mellow and fruity. Some kind of spiciness, too. Toasty, vanilla-ed and laundry fresh, with a medium short finish of oak and outdoorsy spice.
Compact and complex, although pinpointing particular flavours is a challenge as they are all bound up in each other. The kind of well-constructed whisky that reveals a new aroma, taste or impression every sip. The 18% sherry casks used in this whisky make their mark, but gently, like the Founder's Reserve. Available in small releases, who knows how each batch will vary?.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Rich and complex with honey, citrus fruits and vanilla oak notes.
Rich and honeyed with a hint of sherry fruitiness. A spiciness of cinnamon and nutmeg and a subtle oakiness develop with time. The finish is warm and lingering.

Superb in every sense...except possibly the availability!!!
Excellent, very close to the Triple Wood Balvenie.
The Best Whiskey i have ever drunk ,and i never spend big money over 40 pounds never , but this was the biz for me ,
I posted recently about Batch 4 released in the US and really liked that bottling. My friends and I finished that one quickly. I returned to my favorite store for more of it and they just got in Batch 5 and all the Batch 4's were gone. I think Batch 5 was actually better than the 4. It wasn't as harsh as the 4 but had a nice spicey kick to it that was great and balanced with a nice sherry influence. Great scotch for the price. My wife 's son just loved it.
