Proof66 Notes

The Balvenie Distillery takes its name from Balvenie Mains--the fields that gave the whisky its grain--and Balvenie Castle, both figuring in the history of the British Isles. It officially founded in 1893 by William Grant and it still grows its own barley from the 1,000 acre farm. The scotch is made with local spring water, lightly peated, and fermented in the unique "Balvenie ball" in the copper pot still that is mean to "concentrate and sweeten" the flavors. Balvenie has its own cooperage to maintain its casks.

The Balvenie 12yr Signature scotch is meant to showcase and celebrate Master Distiller David Stewart and his art in marrying whisky aged in oak and sherry. It is considered a limited release with each bottle identified with a batch number.

3.7/5, had a dram at an open bar. Pleasant malt that uses some sherry casks. Not peated. It's like a weaker version of macallan 12. It's a solid malt at $35 to $45, this site says suggested retail of $70... That would be criminal.

I liked this better than most 12's. Smooth for a 12 and not heavy on the fruit, more balanced.
