Balvenie 12 Year Old | Sweet Toast Of American Oak
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery bottling 70cl / 43%
The first release as part of Balvenie's Stories Range tells the story of the Apprentice Malt Master, Kelsey McKechnie's creation of this bottling. This 12-year-old has been predominately been matured in ex-bourbon casks and finished in virgin oak casks that have had an extra-long toasting, both at the Kelvin cooperage in Kentucky, and again at the Balvenie cooperage. A delicious complex whisky full of vanilla and caramelised fruits...
Kelsey wanted to create a whisky that shows off how much the craft has evolved in whisky making and by experimenting by giving the virgin oak casks an extra deep toast. This brings extra life and flavour to the wood after its long trip from the states.
