Additional Information

Product code : 2530010782880
The Balvenie 12-year is a complex and mature whiskey. Infused with a supple nuttiness, notes of honeyed sultanas and grapes evoke a hugely inviting spirit. Its bourbon characteristics develop with a gentle spice and a touch of vanilla, while balancing peat lurks in the background. Spicy and slightly drying, it makes an effortless foray into a slightly less sweet dram.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely smooth malt. As someone who had never tried this Balvenie 12 year old double wood malt, I can say I’m not disappointed. I usually enjoy a peaty malt from the Islands but this has changed the way I enjoy a nice Whisky. When you first open the bottle you can smell the sweetness with a slight hint of peat. Once the Balvenie hits your taste buds it lights up so many sensations in your mouth. It’s subtle sweetness, spices, smokiness from the peat to the slight hint of bourbon makes this and delight to drink and enjoy. For anyone who is not sure about Malts then this is one I would definitely recommend to start with. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First review so here goes! Having had this for a few weeks I thought it rather apt that I should actually sample it. Upon opening the lid my olfactory senses were at first overcome with the rather heavy aroma of the malt whisky but once decanted into a tumbler with some frozen whisky rocks it styled down. So to taste - I found this rather easy on my palate and not as harsh as I expected it to be from my first whiff of it and enjoyed the warmth as it passed down into my stomach. Did I enjoy it? Yes. Would I buy a full size bottle? Maybe. Overall, a fine malt that would be enjoyed by a cosy fire on a cool evening with good company. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A most singular malt I tried the Balvenie 12 year old for the first time this week and wondered why I’d never tried it before. It is one of the best single-malt whiskies that I have tasted. Smooth with a slightly spiced finish, it has a very more-ish dried fruit tone, a little vanilla and an almost “Christmas cake” mix of flavours (nutmeg, cinnamon and something else that I couldn’t quite put my finger on) without being overpowering. Each taste revealed another flavour and I really enjoyed it. Smooth, flavoursome and yet still subtle - I think this is my new favourite. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and very warming! I was lucky enough to sample this at the weekend. I’m pretty picky when it comes to whisky and wasn’t sure if this would suit me. I can honestly say that after reading reviews online and description on the Balvenie website I was not disappointed! This is beautiful smooth, almost honey like warming whisky. No harsh after burn at all and the gorgeous warming feeling lasts long after your last mouthful! I also tried it in a floater coffee and that’s Devine! I highly recommend it, especially in a floater coffee! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy vanilla The Balvenie DoubleWood Aged 12 Years Single Malt Scotch Whisky is sweetly fruity and tastes like its been layered with honey and vanilla and for me the vanilla taste to it makes it my new favourite as i love all things vanilla. It's a very smooth and mellow whiskey with beautifully combined flavours of nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and of course the undertone of vanilla. A lovely whiskey to relax with on warm evening sitting in the garden or a cosy night in front of the fire. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC TASTING WHISKY I was given this drink and from the moment I opened the bottle i knew there was something special. The smell was delightful, as I poured it into my glass my mouth was quivering in anticipation. As I took the first sip of the nectar my lips burst into a huge smile and my mouth was amazed at the fresh tasty "water of life", as it oozed down my throat it was like an orchestra playing the most majestic concerto to say I was excited and full of joy is an understatement!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I had high hopes for Balvenie Doublewood 12 year, but unfortunately it wasnt for me. I found it quite rough, whilst I did get the Sherry notes I didnt get much else, no vanilla or honey and found it left a bit of an after taste in my mouth which I didnt enjoy. I know its 'DoubleWood' but thought the whisky was particularly 'woody' and for me I found that off putting and over powering. I'm sure others will love Balvenie, but its just not for me sadly [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth, classy and fragrant Although not a regular whisky drinker, I was tempted to try Balvenie by other reviews and the description. It has a pleasant, slightly sherryish, slightly honeyish smell, and is very smooth to drink. The taste is warming, but lingers in a very good way, with notes of heather or woodlands with a very complex layering of flavours. A great introduction to smooth single malts for the uninitiated I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
