  1. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant and well-cut line (Balvani, as I understand it), rich aroma, harmoniously combined with it taste / finish, can not be too diverse, but rich and deep enough - age makes itself felt, although in general it looks younger than its years. Good work with the fortress - from 48% it was possible to create a very dense and saturated mole, especially in the aftertaste.
    • Nose
      Open, dense, flower-honey, very diverse and rich in shades; orange jam, lemonade notes, in the background - dry grain and freshly scoured boards, light mineral tones;
    • Taste
      Oak-herbaceous with sourness, honey, propolis, orange peel, a little red pepper and ginger.
    • Finish
      Spicy, skins of oranges, candied ginger, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, black (literally) rye bread.

    Enthusiasm 3/5
    Whisky n ° 1337
    • Nose
      An atypical nose with aromatic herbs. Liquorous, alcoholic limit. It's young. A kind of varnish. Over time, it seems to me that it's more like blood orange or grapefruit.
    • Taste
      Whew, here is something a little more "whisky". Beautiful texture. The herbs are still there. A bit simple, missing a little body. Juicy, despite everything.
    • Finish
      Average.

  3. tomy63 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Pale gold color, nose on honey, slightly vanilla, pastry, with apricot, peach, citrus, some grass cut. Mouth powerful for 48%, a little alcohol, at least at the opening of the bottle, on honey, vanilla, a lot of spices (pepper in particular), some vegetable notes. Finale of medium length, spicy, lacking a little fruit. A fairly classic Speysider, a priori aged in barrels of bourbon, a little young for my taste. To enjoy when the bottle has taken a little air. After a few months the whisky is transformed into a real fruity bomb!

    Undisclosed Balvenie. Also available with the "castle label" Speyside 19yo.
