Balvenie 21 Year Old Bottling Note

Here we have the flagship single malt from Balvenie's series of Port Wood whiskies. This 21 year old expression, a marriage of rare Balvenie, was impressively finished in 30 year old port pipes. Originally released in 1996, this whisky is a veritable masterclass in poise and balance. It’s fruity and very subtly smoky, the perfect after-dinner dram.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Elegant. White peach and a faint puff of smoke.

Palate: A gentle, subtle palate with loads of complexity. It offers up a mix of cranberries and cooked raspberries, a little white grape juice and barley.

Finish: Cocoa, slightly bitter as it tails away gracefully.

Balvenie 21 Year Old PortWood Finish Reviews

Sampled

Wasn't sure about this since it's quite different to my normal tastes, but I am so, so glad I did. It's simply delicious - I am positive there will be more to it than I could get out of a 3cl sampler, and the only thing stopping me from ordering a bottle immediately is the need to finish one of my current others.

Moreish

Quite simply stunnng - I could drink a gallon of this stuff. The finish is phenomenal, lingers long on the tastebuds and goes down oh so easy - biggest problem for me is trying to keep such a special whisky for special occasions.

A masterpiece.

fantastic... I cant understand "bland", "forgettable", "terrible"... you guys obviously don't know your Single Malt Scotch.
This is a masterpiece!

Great dram

It so smooth and full of flavour, simply Devine.

Not for the thrill, but with class.

Subtle, complex, an absolute gentleman's scotch. Worth the money, but you need to understand that this was made with class, not for thrill.

Tasting notes correct - gentle and subtle...

...but too subtle for me. Its nice - but nothing here to get anywhere near justifying the price

All time favourite

I don't know what everyone else is talking about it being bland? But this whiskey is beautiful

Y’all suck

The people saying this scotch is over rated and what not have obviously never been a proper scotch drinker. Do you even know how to drink proper scotch

Bland and overpriced

It's not a bad whisky but it's just an instantly forgetable one. Tried as part of a sampler and it's not worth the money.

There is nothing about this that stands out, nothing memorable.

I'm jealous of those that found the port over powering. I bought because of the port but barely got a taste of it.

Very underwhelming. Now the Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask in the sampler... that was more like it.

Balvenie with a beautiful brand but slacking on the delivery.

140 at 40%? I love Balvenie, but I struggle to see how you've got your 12 year single cask above 47% yet this is almost thrice the price and is the base 40%, nothing from Balvenie should be under 43%, and you should lose that 12 Triple cask because the oak kills it.
