Balvenie 12 Single Barrel Bottling Note

Released in 2013, Balvenie's Single Barrel First Fill was matured in first-fill bourbon casks for at least 12 years before bottling. These are limited edition bottlings, with each bottle being one of no more than 300 drawn from a single cask. Each is also hand-numbered and labelled with the cask reference number. A deliciously creamy, vanilla-rich whisky from Balvenie.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Toasted, sweet nose with all kinds of charred oak and spice. Hints of maple syrup and allspice, a little vanilla and sweet coffee.

Palate: A complex, thick palate with allspice and toffee apples. Cooked fruit and baking spices, hints of sponge cake and creamy caramel.

Finish: Long finish with lingering sweetness and spice.

Overall: An intense whisky with lots of influence from the cask. Great value for money too.

Balvenie 12 Year Old Single Barrel - First Fill Reviews

This is a complete single malt

A decent dram

Well...first Balvenie single barrel and two drams in I find it a bit one-dimensional; doesn’t offer the complexity of a 12yo Glenallachie or a 12yo Tobermory. A decent dram without setting off the fireworks!

Very good indeed.

Recently opened my first bottle of this & first taste was pretty uneventful (sour & spice).
A drop of water opened it up slightly, adding a little sweetness.
It was the 2nd glass that it came to life & offered a lovely sweet spiciness along with citrus, tropical fruits, coconut & for a moment what I thought tasted like a fresh baked fruit cake :P
Top stuff !!

whisky as it should be

what a belter of a dram . smooth as silk and bursting with flavour . quite similar to glen garioch 12 ( which is a huge compliment) Really benefits from higher abv and being non chill filtered. Delicious whisky , dangerously moreish

Classic bourbon casked goodness

Lovely stuff. Plenty of vanillin from the cask along with coconut, toasted notes and gentle oak. Bags of distillery character giving a rich mouth feel, floral notes and gentle fruit. Excellent balance and great value.

One of my top picks.

Well balanced, modest Oak flavor up front with obvious vanilla, gives way to fruit and finishes with very obvious honey. I say obvious because it’s so easy to put your finger on, but to be clear I’m not saying it’s overpowering. This is a well balanced whiskey. If you haven’t had it, get some.

Probably a bad cask

Looking at almost all of the other reviews, I might have had the bad luck of a bad cask. A really bad one. Mine is horrible, I can't even drink it.
