25/05/11 Balvenie Signature Batch 2
12yo Balvenie Signature. This is David Stewarts handiwork, it’s his signature on the bottle and it was developed to celebrate his work. First-fill bourbon, refill bourbon and oloroso.
Nose: rich sweet fruit. Dark, spicy and intense yet honeyed.
Palate: more fruit, malt, light spice (cinnamon and a little black pepper), thick honey, vanilla custard, orange zest, hazelnuts.
Finish: Long, sweet and so creamy-smooth.
I love Balvenie, I love the distillery, I love the way they make whisky, I love the tradition, I love the passion, I just love it.
This is an outstanding, spell-binding dram.
And it’s how cheap?! Incredible.
