  1. Rubis scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    40% chill filtered and coloured...Where is this crazy price coming from? The whisky has a nice port wine profile which gives a tender sweetness to the nose and flavour. After taste brings out nice rancid fruit. The port barrel finish works and does what you would expect. That's about all the nice things I can say about this Balvenie.

    Putting aside the port flavours this whisky hasn't got much to offer. No punch, no finesse, no dignity. It's thin, short and just very lacking in general. Really, this isn't any better than your basic 12yo Balvenie double cask.

    Best whisky ever

  3. DannyDram scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Fruity, tobacco, malt, pear, citrus, vanilla biscuits. Refreshing, slightly sweet, little body, thin, drying, slightly salty. Starts well, then degrades a lot.
