(100cl, 40%)

Balvenie 12 Year Old Triple Cask

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Balvenie 12 Year Old Triple Cask to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution, but until then, here are some alternatives:

Balvenie 12YO Triple Cask Bottling Note

The 12 year old expression in Balvenie's travel retail Triple Cask range is made with whisky matured in three different types of cask, namely first-fill American oak barrels, traditional refill casks and first-fill Oloroso Sherry butts. Following the maturation, the whisky is married together to create a cohesive, flavoursome expression packed with orchard fruit, custard cream and cinnamon spice.

Balvenie 12 Year Old Triple Cask Reviews


Sweet, mild, lots of flavours, well balanced. Bought it in a duty free shop for roughly 50 euros some 4 - 5 years ago. From that moment i stayed with it.
Nowadays, its hard to find it, only in a couple of special cavas in Athens, at 95 euros. Worth every cent!

Well worth a try

Bought this on the recommendation of a good friend and glad I did. £60 for a litre in duty free so well worth it. A very enjoyable dram, great flavours. Rumour has it it’s coming to an end due to the master distiller retiring so grab it while you can!

A pleasant dram

So, I picked this up and I was excited. Poured, slowly drank. Wasnt good but wasn't bad. Read some reviews and was a little surprised why I didn't like it as much as I thought. Mmmm for that price I wasn't impressed.

Next day I had to give it another chance. This time, I poured and left for 30mins. Wow, what a massive difference. Does come across quite strong, but only 40%. Loads of flavour, not heavy on sherry. Finish is medium but not long at all which is a shame. However finish does have good flavour so you cant moan.

Overall, a very nice one, just let it breath a little (in my experience anyway)

Pleasant whisky

Not entirely cask dominated but oaky notes come through a little too strongly on occasion. Left to settle for 20-30 mins draws out stronger spicy notes from US 1st fill casks and the Sherry butts. As expected strong dried fruits, hints of tobacco, nuts and leather. Slight aniseed notes also from the high Eugenol from the 1st fill US casks.
Finish is only medium in length and very much reflects the nose and taste compounds.
A pleasant whisky and a bit more spicy than the usual Sherried casks.

Clean and flavorful.

I recieved a small bottle of this scotch as a gift. It is a wonderfully light clear taste. I normally drink Double Wood, it is a much sweeter flavor. I find this flavor cleaner and easy to enjoy.

Excellent if not better than most others in this price rang.

Exceptionally smooth. It leaves a hint of fruit on the palette. Leaves you wanting more. One of the best ones I have had ever. If you like highland scotch’s you will love this!!!

23rd June 2019

This can stand with any champion of this category.

First time I did taste this. Never thought this going to beat other favorite ones. Amazingly this becomes my best drink.

23rd June 2019

Beautifully drinkable!

Surprisingly good dram! I’ve tried the 16 and 17. To my consternation, this is my favourite!

9th May 2019

Fantastic taste in neat also.

The best 12 years whisky

17th December 2018

One of the best...

Best whisky I’ve ever tasted - wish I could afford more!

15th October 2018

Nice stuff

Lovely neat ..😉

13th September 2018

Class act

Tasted it neat as sample at HKIA and liked it such that got my wife to also taste despite not being into whisky. It is a mouthfull yet smooth, leaves the tounge yearning for more. I bought the bottle and have since drank it neat. It's the whisky I measure all other whisky's againts and so far its my personal winner.

12th September 2018

Great but expensive

Tasting notes are spot on and be assured, this is a great whiskey, however Arran 10 and 14 offer arguably equal flavour for half the price hence 4 stars. If this was £40 ish I'd be 5 starring it all the way.

29th July 2018

top to bottom

I like much Highland Park 18 y. but I had chance to try Balvenie 12y. triple cask it is wonderful fool spices and end of tong the like a small dot of peat keeps the mouth and mind willing to repeat.

19th May 2018

wonderful stuff!

nephew brought this to me from china duty free..........absolutely wonderful stuff!!!!

20th April 2018

Good even before breakfast

First encountered Triple Cask in the Glasgow duty-free shop while waiting for an early morning flight back to the U.S. They were offering samples. Tried it neat and just loved it at first smell and sip. If it takes good before 8:00 a.m. it has to be great! Now I pick up a bottle every time I fly.
Layered flavors with a nice imbalance of sweet just a bit over the spice.... just a tiny hint of smoke. Love it neat, or with just a bit of cool water.

28th March 2018

please let's all spell Whisky properly!

absolutely delicious. a gift from my father. I didn't know he knew...

Was introduced to my new best friend by an old friend, Beautiful

Very smooth the Bocquet has a hint of honey. My wife bought me a 20 cl bottle at Manchester airport. Do I take it that this size is only sold in airport duty-free? It was a very nice present but to her disAppointment She asked me to guess the price I guess was at a gross undervalue. I had not realised that this was a premium whiskey. As my wife has now become a fan of your whiskey and can be relied upon during on her numerous airport excursions to buy me a couple of bottles a time I wonder whether you would treat her to a couple of the miniatures. Meanwhile I am your best advert for promoting the brand. I'll be happy to provide you with a forwarding address although we are in the process of moving house at the moment. Great product at a fair price. My surname is Bergson and I will henceforth be known as Bergson of the Balvenie !! With kind appreciation Warren Bergson

Adds another level

The doublewood has long been a favourite of mine and the triple cask stands alongside it adding another level to the rich complexity of the Balvenie whisky's. Can't wait to share this with family and fiends.

10th July 2017

Solid Whiskey

While i prefer is lay whiskeys, my collection will always have a place for the triple wood. An amazing, easy drinking whiskey packed with flavour.

Nose: Honey/nectar, bright fruits like peaches, pears, oranges, a custard combined with mild spices.
Mouth: Oakiness, oranges, a custard & honey sweetness, spices, a slight bitterness when combined with the sweetness is like coco.
Finish: Mild bitterness and an oily, spicy feeling.

Best single malt I have had.

Bought this Scotch in Saint Martin and brought home a bottle. When back 7 months later and bought as much as I could and as much as my fellow passengers could bring back. This is a very smooth, delightful single malt. Would drink it all the time if I wasn't going to run out. One of the best I have had and I have had a lot of different ones.

27th June 2017


An outstanding whisky. The effect of aging in Sherry casks is present, but enhances rather than overwhelms this excellent whisky. Although it has a rather light color, it has a full and complex taste. A little orange, vanilla, smoke, licorice, pepper. All the good stuff.

The biggest problem is finding it in any local retailer.

4th April 2017

Smooth & Well Balanced

A wonderful creamy opening the that then expands its flavoursome depth on the palate as it lingers on the tongue expressing its fruity complexities and flavour depth inherent in a triple cask process. Balvenie 12 Triple Cask is a wonderfully balanced whisky, very smooth and easy to drink that delivers a nice soft yet drawing complexity. Certainly worth a try for any whisky buff. Enjoy!

5th March 2017

Great Whisky

Every time I go through the duty free, I grab a bottle (or two)

Having had 2 bottles back to back from duty free, I was absolutely delighted by this new expression. Sweet and supple, full of rich, ripe fruits - plums, apricots, apples and some subtle spice. Neither of the casks dominate and there is a nice trace of sherry, orange and honey in the finish. A very elegant and polished Balvenie - have ordered a third bottle!

6th November 2016

Best of All

Best whiskey I ever tasted. From the first sip my preferred whiskey

13th October 2016

Exquisite malt

My preferred whisky..Smooth and full of sweet aromas and flavor!

17th August 2016

Hard to find but worth the hunt

Found this spirit only once, in the duty free shop on a cruise. What a spectacular rendition of Balvenie's always superior products. Booking another cruise just to replenish my stock.

23rd May 2016

A winner

Smooth and full bodied. Just the right amount of smoke and vanilla taste. My favourite!

16th April 2016


Bought a liter of the Triple Cask onboard, in the duty free shop, for about $60.00. As the say, what a baaagiiin! Best I've had, bar none. Inveterate Glenlivet 12 drinker, this single malt has character, complexity and finish.

26th March 2016


Excellent single malt I will always recommend

22nd March 2016


One of my favourite scotch . Smooth and easy to drink . But unfortunately they don't sell it in australia

1st March 2016

A very pleasant dram

Really exceeded expectation with an incredible balance and a super tasty feel. Nose is fruity and sweet, while taste reminds me of ripe apples and plums. A touch of honey with malt towards the end. Finish is warming spicy and rather long albeit just 40%.
