    What an absolute car crash of a whisky, this was thin and sweet
    What happened Balvenie do you really think you can put our such below par rubbish?
    Perhaps it was a tall order drinking this after Laphy 10

    Room temperature when drinking: 24 ℃

    Looking at Eyes: Copper and gold smelling Nose: Pour it out and let it sit for a while, the alcohol taste will be better after it disappears. The base is decorated with Bourbon barrels and Shirley barrels. The aroma of roasted nuts is particularly evident, with roasted walnut kernels and baked cashew nuts loitering on the surface. Some fresh fruit (girl fruit), coconut flakes, frankincense, yogurt steamed cake. Smell is relatively thin.
    Taste Palate: Slightly sour, with a little bitter base, diluted yogurt, nut jujube cake, walnut cheese, red dates Tremella syrup, pencil shavings Finish: long, vanilla cake, jujube with walnuts, wood shavings Body: one A little alcohol thickness, but the whole is slightly loose

    Nose: 83.5 / 100
    Palate: 83.5 / 100
    Finish: 83/100
    Body: 83/100
    Overall: 83/100
