View Full Version : Balvenie

Well, I need a few opinions. I have tried a few of the Balvenie products which are the Doublewood and the Caribbean Cask (favorite thus far). I was wondering how their other products taste and what is worth buying? Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

I thought both the 17 Portwood and 21 Portwood were excellent, although pricey. I haven't had a Balvenie yet I didn't like!

The same with me! Probably can't go wrong trying any of their products.

I have noticed that one can taste more variance in the 15 yrs. Single Cask expression than any of the other expressions. My "daily drink" is the Carribean cask. Neither the Peat Cask nor the Islay expressions can match up to a good Islay single malt.
Of the Tun 1401 expressions, Batch #3 is probably my favorite although I have not tried the 8 yet.

Caribbean cask all the way for me but Double Wood ain't far behind. I need to try the 17 Double Wood soon. Also would LOVE to try the Triple Cask they put out.
anyone else get their free gift that they sent out in march when they redid their warehouse website.
Nice Balvenie Glencairn Glass and Dvd of them touring the states.

My interest in the Caribbean cask has been piqued, any tasting notes?
