    A decent whisky slightly clipped by the rum, but still with depth and good flavour. 
    • Nose
      Creamy, fruity, and oaky. Acetone, white fruit, sugar. 
    • Taste
      Creamy, flinty, and spicy. Spun sugar, white fruit, spice, and bitterness. 
    • Finish
      Medium-long finish with mild fruit and sweetness, spice, and bitterness.

    Pleasant whisky to drink on a warm day. Just sit down, relax and enjoy this easy going Balvenie! Tip for Balvenie: leave the coloring agent behind... ;-)
    • Nose
      Fantastic! Sweet, some vanilla, brown sugar, syrup. Lovely scent.
    • Taste
      Sweet, vanilla, brown sugar, a bit fruity, creamy toffee, bit spicy.
    • Finish
      Moderate long. More fruit comes though at the longer end. Soft finish.

    Lovely bright gold color. Layers of sweetness (the characteristic Balvenie honey, along with vanilla fudge, nougat and rich toffee) peppered with dried spice and a hint of tropical fruit (papaya, guava, tangerine). Great viscosity with good grip on the finish.

    Tasting Notes:

    Color: Amber

    Nose: Soft brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, honey, cherry liqueur chocolates, slightest suggestion of pepper and oak

    Palate: Waxy mouthfeel, overripe bananas and nectarines, rum soaked Xmas cake with an abundance of candied ginger, little woody

    Finish: Moderate to quite long, classic Balvenie honey, returning brown sugar, hints of nutmeg and cardamom

    One of the best 14 yr Scotch I have tried. I love this version from Balvenie because they incorporate the rum and its flavor palate. The spectrum of Rum and Scotch together is ummm oh so good. This one will be running out sooner or later so get it while you can.

    Not being a fan of rum finished or rum cask matured whisky, I am probably not a good judge.  Not for me.
    • Nose
      Sweet and fruity.  Rum raisin cake.  Banana.  Sun tanning oil?
    • Taste
      Rich and spicy.  Damp wood.  Ripe tropical fruits (pineapple, mango).  Chocolate bar.  Something is off here, but I cannot place it.
    • Finish
      Medium and oaky.  The spicyness remains.  Odd.
