Whisky reviews for Balvenie 12-year-old

One user has left a review for this whisky. Average rating is 86.00 points.

  1. PeterCr scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Slightly darker then other casks. Bourbon casks are recognizable again.

    Again a great whisky with great value for money. Enough complexity and depth to make it interesting and nice heat/burn.

    Score 88-90pts.
    • Nose
      Fruity notes (tropical, melon, apple, pears), little spice (pepper, vanilla). Some hay and some citrus notes.
    • Taste
      Mouthwarming with some fruity notes (tropical), some honey, creme brulee with some vanilla. Smooth body/texture. Also some woody notes (oak).
    • Finish
      Nice warming sweet (burned sugar) finish with some spicy notes (pepper).
      Long finish.
