The Balvenie Single Barrel 12 year old

This 12 year old single barrel edition by The Balvenie distillery  was aged in a first fill ex-bourbon barrel. The Malt Master selected it for its complexity, rich palate and spice-laden flavour. Just 300 bottles were released.

Balvenie distillery

Balvenie distillery is located in Dufftown. It was built in 1892 on the site of a mansion. The original name of the distillery was Glen Gordon but it was quickly changed. Not an awful lot happened at the distillery other than continuous and almost uninterrupted production until 1957. On that year the production capacity of the distillery was doubled.

The first Balvenie single malt was released in 1973. Up until then the vast majority of its production was used in blends. After Kininvie distillery was built in 1990 some more Balvenie whisky could be sold as a single malt.

The whisky produced at Balvenie derives its character from the usage of sturdy and short pot stills. A short fermentation period is also preferred.
