Balvenie Signature 12YO Batch Three released


Batch Three available mid-May. RRP £31.49

First created in 2008 to mark malt master David Stewart’s 45th year in the whisky industry, The Balvenie Signature 12 Year Old from William Grant & Sons is a limited release, single malt Scotch whisky produced in small, numbered batches.

Its character is achieved through marrying the three traditional cask types: first fill bourbon, refill bourbon and sherry. From the sherry butts comes rich fruit and spiciness; the bourbon barrels convey subtle vanilla oak and layers of honey, while the refill casks impart delicate, sweet notes and smoothness.

“What we've ended up with is a complex single malt with many layers of taste and structure, one that really demonstrates the magic of the wood – making it a lovely addition to The Balvenie collection,” says Stewart.
