Kudos for Balvenie showing for affordable price what first fill bourbon casks can do for malt whisky. Balvenie are producing the kind of whisky I like. Unusual for a distillery of this size, Balvenie still operates its small floor maltings, grows some of its own barley, and has an on-site cooperage. These Single Barrel offerings are tricky. It was a nice single malt, i just cant find it anymore.
Easily my top recommendation for an enjoyable dram during winter's short and frosty days. This is a light-coloured whisky with surprisingly complex and unusual flavour. If you like to boof, you will love this!
It has a long Finish that tastes sweet and fruity. Bannana convection, single party dortmund lebenshilfe bannana spices. Keep the sherried stuff coming and we are just waiting for the cask strength Balvenie to be released. Whisky lover can only ask why!

- While the Balvenie Double Barrel I sampled last night was decent, this sample was not at all enjoyable.
- We can't actually ship to you in United States at the moment.
- Absolutely stellar dram for the price.
- Barley lies on a bed of juicy ripe fruit.
- Opened a bottle of this tonight and there are no words to describe it's delicate and smooth yet rich flavour.
- Afterwards the taste lingers and whilst it has a strong flavour it doesn't have the burn you get from some whiskies.
Always have a couple of bottles in! If your like me and your the Guy that loves to buy sweets during or after drinking. This is only the second of the Balvenie range I have tried after the Doublewood, but I found it to be delicious - smooth like vanilla, but with enough of a kick. Very nice fragrance, great flavor, and a soft finish like a sweet kiss.
Hence I knocked off half a star. If you have the ability to try a sample before buying a specific numbered cask of this release, I highly recommend taking that path. Great value for money and ticks all the boxes. Sweet and spicy on the nose with hints of rye, spice and mango backed up by a healthy dose of vanilla - gets more fruity with water. Outclassed a couple of more expensive bottles with a group of Scotch lovers.
Luckily it is much improved by the addition of water. First bottle of this particular brand from a begginner on the whiskey journey. The people saying it's overrated need to go back to drinking Ardbeg Kelpie. Well balanced, modest Oak flavor up front with obvious vanilla, frauen treffen gives way to fruit and finishes with very obvious honey.
Nose Sherry obviously, orange is quite prevalent, some sort of sugary thing. Rating within class and price range. Buy this now, you will not regret it. This is my bottle period end of story. Beneath this is a layer of waxy tutti-frutti bubble gum, orange blossom honey, kaffir lime leaves, single wohnung marburg and very light shortbread-like malt.

Not overdone like various sherry monsters. The taste, however, is a bit strange, herbal notes surrounded by sweet malt. The first bottle was bananas.
The second was more green and grassy. One dimensional and just an average dram imop. Each is also hand-numbered and labelled with the cask reference number.
Lingers, too sweet, but makes a good dessert before bed. Vanilla, fresh fruits and a bit of spice. No spam and entirely confidential. Smooth, fruity, with a very slight kick. We sampled this with a few Cuban cigars and good conversation.
Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Barrel Sherry Cask Whisky - Master of Malt
- Lots of vanilla, honey, oak, apples with a long citrus finish.
- All there is, is harsh spice and more spice.
- Another great Whisky from the Balvenie, and also a good price.
- The Balvenie character shows through but not strongly.
- It has quite a smooth, sweet and thick taste to it with hints of caramel and apples tasting notes above are accurate in my opinion.
The first one was perfect. May drop an Alaskan snowflake or two in the quaich tonight and see what comes out. This is by far, the best of the best!
Balvenie 12 anos Single Barrel First Fill
This is punchy up front with aromas of spiced apples baked on a campfire served with ice cream and then with honey and treacle flavours pushing through the mid-palate. No complexity, no vanilla fudge, no powdered oak, no nuttiness, just a sharp, unpleasant characterless thug across the palate every time I take a sip. The finish is also improved, with a rummy caramel and some fading menthol.

It is important to put this particular scotch in perspective. My first bottle was amazing, thought it would be my go to whisky, waring single spindle and at such great value. However a nice warmth and smooth burn follows the initial and lingers. Very nice but very strong.
Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Barrel Sherry Cask
Basically that's the case with any single barrel which is as it's name implies. Somehow from the buttery profiles of the ex-bourbon single barrels I expected something similar but sweeter and maybe with a'bunadhlike characteristiks because it's been casked in oloroso, but nope. That is a bargain and a half. Could possibly be a Saturday night dram too.
If you got a Buddy that you notices that likes to buy sweet stuff while your drinking or after you done. This is quite an amazing drink. Cooked fruit and baking spices, hints of sponge cake and creamy caramel. Tastes more expensive than it is!
