Balvenie 12 Year old Double Wood


NewImage

Distiller:
Balvenie

Region:
Speyside

ABV:
40%

Colour:
Pale Gold

Review:
Sweet sweet custard notes come in to play on the nose with sufficient hints of honey. The palate is a warm tingly mix of apple stew with a dollop of sugar on top. The finish is surprisingly long for a Speyside this mild with nicely balanced sweet notes covered in pears.

While my general comments are positive overall this single malt is not up to Balvenie’s usual high standards.
