- Just beginning to get into my whiskeys, have tried a few now and this has a very short, smooth finish.
- Hints of Cinnamon, honey and a slight smoky finish.
- One of the best blended whiskies I have had.
- Well my wife just polished this off saying it was far superior to the Grant's blend I buy for her whisky mac!
Easy to drink neat, no real heat to this drink. Please enter a valid password. It doesn't linger long, but I found myself comparing the flavor to Highland Park or Macallan, singles just a bit hotter and not quite as sophisticated.
Classic Spayside and so pleasant to drink. Given its price it's a great deal for a daily drink. Bought half a case based exclusively on the opinions of a few friends.
The malt produced here has a fantastic Speyside character that captures both the region and the heart of the distillery itself. Wow I have never recommended a malt before but this is stunning! However, because I was looking for a good scotch, ulm team I was disappointed with this.
- However, we all have a different palate and if you like it, by all means go for it.
- But for those special occasions, it simply doesn't stand out.
- But he's not the only one that can enjoy this tipple.
My preference is for peaty stuff from the Western Isles! Taste alters no longer able to Taste Simplicity's subtleness. The whiskey connoisseur will not be bored with the Ardmore selection so don't be afraid of picking up the wrong one for a gift. At first, a sharp insecticidal taste. Dont buy one bottle, buy two!
It's that bad it needs coke or dry for me to be able to consume it. Great whisky with cheap price i highly recomend it. Prefer this blend over any other any Johnny W. Taste buds hold the molecules and never is the throat hurt.

You'll also be delighted to find a rather surprising honey note in any of their whiskeys. Too sweet in my opinion, especially the palate. Just a giant hit of vanilla right off the bat.

Fuller body, slightly sweet with honey and cinnamon. Cheersssssssssss to people. This is an easy recommendation for a new Scotch drinker.
On the otherhand, it didn't stand out either. Try it and you will be O so happy! This something affordable that can be quaffed quickly, implemented into a cocktail or enjoyed slowly. Giving this whisky the benefit of the doubt, I'll try it again if someone else I know offers me a glass to compare it to the bottle I had. This is best enjoyed with a drop of water to open up the complex flavours.
The finish is warm though I agree with others that it disappears in short order. Taste gave me butteryness, honey flavors, and bakewell tart. Mmmmm, looks like this is going to be a good year! Manuka honey, hot-buttered-toast and dried apricot develop. Yet, for a special gift, it would be good to seek out one of the rarer bottles.
At that price point, it absolutely delivers. Many fond memories and hopefully many more to come. There is no hint of smoke though. Disappointingly, despite some complexity, I found it difficult to locate any definitive sweetness - just an unpleasant harshness. Personally, I find Monkey Shoulder to be a liquid substitute for a sweet dessert, and a very satisfying substitute indeed.

Reminds me of a molded cheese, with a really bad smell. Strong and has a good overall speyside flavor. Slight spiciness kicks in at the end. Viva the monkeys and Cape Town South Africa.
The problem though is, that in the morning I had the worst hangover ever. Accompanied with marios suvla all the way from cyprus we had a bottle this afternoon and it was amazing. Smooth, pleasant, very drinkable.
This has become my whisky of choice. Improved considerably with a splash of water but still overpowering. They should get their act together sooner rather then later. Recommended for the general whiskey drinker! Fantastic if you like dark fruity flavours like myself.
The sherry influence is discreet and combines really well with the Balvenie style. The Balvenie's house style of whiskey has a pronounced orange note, similar to The Glenlivet's pineapple character. When you research the blend, it comes back as William Grants mucking about with the three malt distilleries they own, glenfiddich, balvenie both pretty hit and miss at times and kininvie.
But I found it to be an easy whisky to sip with a good cigar, some good friends, and good conversation. Some citrus and cinnamon spice. This one is so drinkable that it would make a great addition to a whiskey cocktail gift basket packed with the mixers to make Rob Roys and Rusty Nails. Nearly the same price for an easy Glenmoramgie Original.
The elegance of a good Speyside scotch is a gift anyone can appreciate
Review Balvenie Port Wood 21 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Am usually a single malt drinker, but this blend is an awesome introduction to masterly blended whiskey. Balance is the best word I can think of to describe this wonderful single malt. While The Glenlivet is the top-selling single malt in the United States and number two in the world, Glenfiddich is top in the world and number two in the U.
Balvenie 12 Year Old DoubleWood
The best blended Scotch available in this price range. Mr David Shire I am new to scotch. Good nose and no difficult follow through. My daughter got me a bottle for Chistmas.
Then after a few seconds there is a natural burn with more hints of dried fruits, dark chocolate, sherry and some oak. Calling this a scotch is a stretch. Got a bottle as a fathers day gift.
