  1. Ostap scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    09/21/2021:
    Age in the aroma is felt immediately, manifested by softness, smoothness, silkiness. In general, a typical Spaceside (in its modern sense), but with a chic balance and drinkability. The standard bourbon excerpt is a real gem in the ocean of mediocre bourbon excerpts.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Sweet pastries with fruit (apples and plums), pear-shaped in all possible manifestations (from essence with concentrated pear aroma, to fresh pear and pitted pear jam), bread crust, vanilla, oily, oak, semolina, wax, m saltiness (salted caramel), brittle cookies.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Pills, pears with apples, oak, honeycombs, wax.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Pills, oak and crunchy dry, pear-apple, medium duration.

    A great mix of fruits and citrus. Less complex than single barrel Balvenie 15, but a lot more powerful. For me it is almost 90
    • Nose
      90 90
      Pollen white flowers, big honey herbs, lemon citrus, slightly mineral, overripe pear, light peach. More herbaceous and fruity nose than single barrel Balvenie 15
    • Taste
      90 90
      A mix of vanilla cream, natural honey, pear juice, citrus lemon, fat waxiness, light white pepper. A lot of powerful and well-mixed flavors
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium-long, citrus lemon, white pepper, long creaminess

    A very nice herbaceous-honey age classic style of hand-made Balvini, and as often happens, a cask rejected for non-format and sold to a bottler is better than many official releases .... such is the prose of life.

    The aroma is initially closed. Taking Blenders glass. Immediately pears in honey, herbal notes, a little vanilla, even notes of chalk felt. It tastes like honey, pepper, probably wax, too, the finish is quite long. Good balance. All at 22.5.

    Nose: Fruit, fruit and fruit again. Some honey. Sweet
    Taste: Strong fruit taste. Fruit covered with dust. Strong aroma. Alcohol hidden. In next attempts you can notice a bourbon barrel
    Rating: 89 100 Long, definitely fruity finish. I haven't had such a fruity whiskey in a glass for a long time. Very pleasant to receive!
