  1. AgentMunky scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Appearance is a pale, straw gold, close to rose gold. Legs for days, oily and thick. Natural color.

      8 // 8.5

      Obvious vanilla, subtle butter. Doesn't smell 26yo, but jives with the appearance. On style for The Balvenie. // Spicier and even more lively.
    • Taste

      7 // 7

      Very dry and astringent up front, but as you chew on it fruit emerges. // Sweeter and more on character, but somehow still a touch lacklustre. Don't get me wrong, I like this whisky a lot, but this particular bottling isn't better than say a solid DoubleWood
    • Finish
      65 65
      6 // 6.5

      A bit of a watery finish. Touch of tobacco (or maybe just wood).
