  1. rayalfa75 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Too expensive for what it offers, there are cheaper ones with the same or better quality, you can sense the marketing idea behind the stories

  2. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Lacking any real depth.
    • Nose
      Quite spirity on opening. As it develops its soft and delicate, a lot of sweetness coming through, honey and touches of vanilla. There a unique aroma lurking, a kind of grassiness which I do not usually get with Balvenie...I guess this must be the heather!
    • Taste
      Palate has sweet honey which is quickly followed by oak notes. A slight bitter oak note is followed by vanilla pods and root.
      Very light with not a lot going.
    • Finish
      Soft and short with grassy note.
