The Balvenie Scotch Whiskey Review by the Whiskey Noob
Here’s a perfect example of how price and age do NOT determine the taste and quality of a whiskey.
The 12 year and 17 year both taste fuckin awesome, BUT (BIG BUTT) there’s about a $100 difference between the two.
The 12 year goes for about $45-50 and the 17 year goes for about $140-150 and the taste between the two is NOT that different.
The 17 yr gets a slightly higher rating because it’s a little more complex and a little (but barely) easier to drink…but for $100 less you might as well go for the 12 yr because it’s pretty damn delicious on it’s own.
If you are a noob still dippin your toes into whiskey, then there is absolutley no reason to piss away an extra $100 for something that might taste EXACTLY the same…
Either way you can’t go wrong with either so enjoy!!!
