Good news: You've got impeccable taste in liquor. The not-as-good news? It means it's currently out of stock. Add this bad boy to your wish list and we'll let you know if it comes our way.
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.

Another fantastic scotch. The Balvenie distillery is one of those that stand out. This is one you will keep in the bar and bring it out for a toast

Holy shitbags! This is good!

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.
Corey
