Och The Balvenie

Halò Single Malt Mates,

I have owned many Balvenie expressions. I am showcasing the 12, as it is available almost everywhere. The Balvenie has port exressions and sherried expressions as well as a peated one.

Here is the expression:
12 Year Old Double Wood 40% 70cl

Producer William Grant and Sons
Age 12 Year Old
Bottle Size 70cl
Alc. Volume 40%
Bottler Official
Region Speyside

One of the few distilleries in Scotland that goes from barley to cask on site, with much of the barley being grown on site, malted on site, distilled and filled in casks that are coopered on site. The Doublewood is a lovely, easy drinking single malt that has been aged in ex Bourbon casks, before being finished in ex Sherry casks.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Fruity notes, followed by oloroso sherry notes, mixed with honey and vanilla.
Palate: Nutty notes, cinnamon spicy notes, sherry notes and a warming finish.

This expression is available at BEVMO, Total Wine and other liquor wholesalers.

It is a guid dram and relatively cheap.

Here’s to swearing, lying, stealing and drinking.
When you swear, swear by your country;
When you lie, lie for a friend;
When you steal, steal away from bad company;
And when you drink, drink with me.

and every day I don’t)
