The Balvenie Stories 12 Year Old Sweet Toast of American Oak, 43% ABV (6 x 70CL)

Scotland Speyside Dufftown

Inspired to produce an even fruitier, sweeter Balvenie, Apprentice Malt Master Kelsey McKechnie had the bright idea to import Virgin Oak barrels from Kentucky. After deep toasting them at The Balvenie Cooperage they were filled with Balvenie aged in ex-bourbon barrels. The result is a delectably complex whisky with notes of candied fruit, coconut and delicate vanilla.

Lusciously malty with some sweet fudge on the nose, followed by citrusy and oak vanilla aromas with layers of spicy oak notes of ginger and cinnamon. On the palate there is candied orange and lemon peel, vanilla toffee and butterscotch, layers of blossom honey, some melted brown sugar and oak spices at the end. It finishes rich and malty with gentle waves of oak vanilla and subtle spices.
