The Balvenie The Sweet Toast Of American Oak 12 Year Old
Named for the virgin oak barrels sourced from the Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky, this 12 yr old single malt has a pleasantly bready character along with hints of vanilla, brown butter, almond, and a bit of salt on the finish.

Neat Twist on a Great Scotch
I like all the Balvenie I’ve tasted, but this one is a touch sweeter and a little less smoke than some of the others. I think it’s my favorite so far, but I am a bourbon fan as well. I will buy it again, especially to serve my bourbon-drinking buddies. Definitely worth a try if that’s to your taste.
