Balvenie 12 Years Single Barrel First Fill

This single-barrel bottling from Balvenie emphasizes the influence of the barrel on the taste of a whisky. Oak barrels are natural products and each one is different. This gives each whisky a different taste. For this bottling, Balvenies Malt Master selected only barrels with a sweet vanilla and oak character. All bottles are labeled with the barrel number and the bottle number.
