Top reviews for The Balvenie The Sweet Toast of American Oak 12 YO:

— I cannot express how much I feel in love with this dram! The first pour was basic. Then as you got deeper in the bottle the gingerbread came out more with the Oak. It produce a smooth, creamy dram of Christmas in July! This will always be on my shelf.

— L I ivi

— Wow, what an enjoyable scotch! Complex beginning to end with just a hint of spice/heat... each time I go back I am discovering something new. Likely to become a staple in my home bar.

Sweet, light. Quick on then off but then a slight linger in the back of the throat.

Another favorite. Sweet toasty notes of spice, toffee and vanilla with a smooth medium finish.

Evan,
Absolutely loved this one, so much flavor on the tongue with a sweet cinnamon toast followed with a smooth finish. Definitely going to purchase this one again
 
Bob
Bob,
Wow! This is one of the most complex Scotches I’ve tasted. Also one of the most unique. You definitely taste the spiciness - I thought maybe cloves or cinnamon at first (but flavor profile says gingerbread). I’ll buy this again!

When they say "Gentle waves of oak vanilla....They ain't lying on the finish! Similar to the Caribbean Cask w/o the Rum taste!

Kurt,
Love it. Very smooth. Sweet and delicious up front with a lingering delicate oak finish. Great mouth feel that coats your palate. Every glass is a treat.

Very tasty! Don’t know all the official language of an official reviewer but it was.l very enjoyable with my cigar on the porch of my saloon!

Good, but not the same oomph as the rest of the line

Daniel,
Walnuts and honey graham crackers, not a very long finish. I was hoping for more from this one. Still very drinkable, but I’ll stick with Monkey Shoulder for the price or the 21yr if I want something to savor. I should have waited longer to rate it...found myself enjoying it much more the 2nd and 3rd time around...gets better the more I go back to it
