  1. Ashita scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    It's so boring, I don't know if Balvenie malt master can drink the flavor by himself

  2. molpet scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A disappointing, generic, beginner's whisky at 40% that does not offer anything special. Interchangeable and forgettable. Not worth your money and time.

  3. hapha scored this whisky 75 points Member Senior

    a classic Balvenie, unfortunately it lacks the complexity of the somewhat older ones - it should have matured for another 2-3 years.
    You can drink it fine, but for the taste it should rather play in the €30 category
