The Balvenie Distillery was built by William Grant & Sons in 1892, giving it a long history in the art of distilling. It is found near the town of Dufftown in the Speyside region of Scotland and is still owned by William Grant & Sons today, meaning that history remains intact. The malt produced here has a fantastic Speyside character that captures both the region and the heart of the distillery itself.
 
Matured in two different casks, American Oak and then European oak Sherry casks, this is a rich and complex Whisky. With a good age statement, the oak of the barrels gives a deep sweet and spicy flavour alongside a fruitiness imparted from the Sherry casks. There is also something of a honeyed and floral taste to this expression, a characteristic it shares with its 12 Year Old counterpart.

Coats the tongue like thick honey and sherry undertone. Vanilla and Carmel longer.

It's one of my all time favorites, a little expensive for my everyday needs, but my go to for special occasions paired with a good cigar!

A clear step above others in the double cask realm. Smooth, clean and outstanding. Can't say enough good things about it, very easy drinker, even my non-whisky drinking wife likes this one!

Dan,
Fantastic. Bought a bottle for my wedding because I love the 12 year - and it almost ruined the 12 year for me... Did a side-by-side, and they share a lot of the same characteristics, with the 17 much smoother.
