Description

The Balvenie Single Barrel 12 Year Old celebrates the individuality of single cask maturation. While the core Speyside character shines through, each bottle offers subtle variations depending on the specific cask used.

Aroma

The initial impression offers a delightful sweetness. Honey and vanilla notes take center stage, characteristic of The Balvenie house style. Hints of ripe orchard fruits like apple and pear might emerge, adding a touch of freshness. Subtle baking spices like cinnamon or nutmeg might also be present, hinting at the complexity of the whisky. Depending on the cask, a touch of sherry influence or a whisper of floral notes might also be present.

Palate

The medium-bodied character offers a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. The initial taste is a wave of sweetness, with honey and vanilla playing a prominent role. The orchard fruit notes translate beautifully to the palate, offering a refreshing counterpoint. Depending on the cask, a hint of sherry influence or a touch of oaky spice might emerge, adding complexity. The overall impression is one of remarkable smoothness and pleasant variations depending on the specific bottling.

Finish

The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a medium-length finish. Hints of honey, spice, and oak linger on the palate. The influence of the specific cask might leave a final whisper of flavor, highlighting the unique character of single cask bottlings.
