When brought to Scotland and used for the very first time they are known as ‘First Fill’. These are limited edition bottlings, with each bottle being one of no more than 300 drawn from a single cask. Each is also hand-numbered and labeled with the cask reference number. A deliciously creamy, vanilla-rich whisky from Balvenie. Balvenie Single Barrel Single Malt Scotch Whisky 12 year old is bottled at a higher strength of 47.8% ABV.
Toasted, sweet nose with all kinds of charred oak and spice. Hints of maple syrup and allspice, a little vanilla, and sweet coffee.
A complex, thick palate with allspice and toffee apples. Cooked fruit and baking spices, hints of sponge cake, and creamy caramel.
Long finish with lingering sweetness and spice.
An intense whisky with lots of influence from the cask. Great value for money too.
