Balvenie Scotch Whisky Review

The Balvenie Scotch whisky distillery, together with Glenfiddich and Kininvie, form a trilogy of distilleries belonging to William Grant & Sons, all within walking distance of each other on the same estate.

 

Balvenie distillery is one of the few to still use its own floor maltings, although this accounts for less than 10% of its needs.

 

The distillery has its own cooperage and barley is grown on the family farm.

 

 

Balvenie Whisky Tasting Notes

 

Distillery Style

 

Nose :      Rich with honey and orange,

Palate :    Medium rich body, fantastic array of fruit complexity and light spicy  

                 notes underlined with honey, touch of sweetness.                        

Finish :    Long, lingering, rich, fruity, honey.

 

 

Balvenie 12 year old Double Wood

 

Nose   : Rich, malty fruitcake, sherried with honey and orange.

Palate : Smooth and mellow fruit (orange). Sweet and spicy with nuts

               and sherry. Big honey influence.

Finish : Long with toffee and honey.

 

 

Balvenie 12 year old Signature

 

Nose   : Like the Double Wood with an extra slice of fruitcake. Ginger and

               honey combine with other delicate spices to form a complex

               weave of aromas.

Palate : Fresh oak and vanilla, more dried fruit, orange and subtle

               spices.

Finish : Very smooth with vanilla, orange and honey.

 

 

Balvenie 14 year old Caribbean Rum Cask

 

Nose  : Rich and malty with sweet vanilla creamy toffee interlaced with

              honey and dried fruits.

Palate : A lovely creamy malt mouthfeel (not over sweet). Rich fruit

              flavours and gentle spices.

Finish : Long smooth and malty.
