Luckily it is much improved by the addition of water. Plenty of floral and light fruits on the nose. Great value for money and ticks all the boxes. If you like to boof, you will love this! Balanced Fine balanced representation of the Balvenies.
The first day I almost knocked back just below the shoulders on this bottle. Already one of my favorites. Not the best but a very good whisky to have in your collection. This is punchy up front with aromas of spiced apples baked on a campfire served with ice cream and then with honey and treacle flavours pushing through the mid-palate.
Somehow from the buttery profiles of the ex-bourbon single barrels I expected something similar but sweeter and maybe with a'bunadhlike characteristiks because it's been casked in oloroso, but nope. While the Balvenie Double Barrel I sampled last night was decent, this sample was not at all enjoyable. The nose takes awhile to open up, well over ten minutes before all the bourbon notes are really out in full force.
The Scotch Noob
Need to warm up to it first. It has quite a smooth, sweet and thick taste to it with hints of caramel and apples tasting notes above are accurate in my opinion. Also, they never add colour or phenols but I had heard that diageo distilleries do this to make the product look and taste nicer than it otherwise would be.
This is a well balanced whiskey. Keep the sherried stuff coming and we are just waiting for the cask strength Balvenie to be released. Still pretty pricey for what you get I think but this rating is just to balance out my previous one.
Some oak barrel tannin, but not drying. Fine balanced representation of the Balvenies. One ice cube brings the flavour out brilliantly.
Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Barrel
Lots of flavors and some real complexity. The finish is toffee-sweet with mild spice and vanilla. The second was more green and grassy.
As I also like American Bourbon, my palate tends to the sweeter whiskies. Afterwards the taste lingers and whilst it has a strong flavour it doesn't have the burn you get from some whiskies. One dimensional, boring and bland.

Now I have had doublewood many times and it is great but it is also overpriced here in the states now and since its the same price as this figured this was a better value and wow was I right. It's not chill filtered as one review said. Bitters Pre-Mixed Cocktails Garnishes.
Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Barrel Sherry Cask
But my friends love it, and I love serving it to them. Water releases a note of condensed milk and tinned fruit salad. For those who like some sweetness, singles this is a great scotch.
Great way of showing the full power of the American Oak casks. Great after taste which leaves a warm glow. May drop an Alaskan snowflake or two in the quaich tonight and see what comes out.

Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Barrel Sherry Cask Whisky - Master of Malt
The whisky is not chill-filtered and has no added coloring which is obvious by its pale straw appearance. Fantastic flavor without trying too hard. One of the very few places that still does it right is the William Grant site where this comes from. Vanilla, siegen singles fresh fruits and a bit of spice.
No spam and entirely confidential. The finish is not long, single at first the toffee lingers but that is soon replaced by an old wood feel. Best with a teaspoon of water. Very smooth and wonderful. Have to spend about twenty more for that.
- All of the sweet notes you would expect from a well done sherried scotch.
- The hand numbered bottle leaves great impressions.
- The taste is more sherrylike than expected.
The nose includes toasted malt, oak, and pumpkin pie. It is important to put this particular scotch in perspective. Nose Sherry obviously, orange is quite prevalent, some sort of sugary thing. Select Country United Kingdom.
Real great new product of D. Add to a Wishlist Wishlist. Unfortunately Balvenie has left lots of flavors on the table by chillfiltering and probably adding some artificial coloring.
Not exactly value for money, but this is a very good Balvenie nonetheless - quite different from the standard expressions. All from a Distillary which works traditionally, hats of to all at the Balvenie. The Balvenie hit a home run with this expression! It was a nice single malt, i just cant find it anymore. Have been a fan of single malt whiskey never tried single barrel before so was curious when a friend gave me this bottle as a gift and boy I'm I sold.
The finish is also improved, with a rummy caramel and some fading menthol. It's the perfect match for people like that, and I'm one of them. Vanilla is dominant on the nose. Currency and Delivery Country. This is by far, the best of the best!
