  1. Casketje scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great middle-aged Speysider with a gorgeous nose - sweet, spices, oak and slightly fruity. The taste is less sweet but is still beautifully balanced with barley sugars and oak. Aftertaste is long with a stunning chocolate note at the end. Really lovely.

    Color: Straw
    True to the Balvenie spirit: Light, sweet, balanced. Sherry compliments but never disturbs the profile. Very nice chocolate note on the aftertaste, overall a bit too docile for me.

      Medium intensity. Malt cereal and honey. Soft sherry, sugared rhubarb, not very complex.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Light and sweet. Initial light pepper spice, sweetness returns together with oak spices. Faint fruitiness only shows after some chewing.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium intensity and medium-long length. Smooth and rich comedown of sweet balanced sherry and aged oak spices. Honeycomb, a soft oak notes and dark chocolate lingers.

    Very nice palette of honey, chocolate, syrup, fruit juice, pineapple, herbs and a pepper.
