  1. ericben scored this whisky 80 points Newbie

    - Not overly peaty
    - Nice rum traces
    - A bit pricey for what it is

    I'm not the biggest fan of Belvenie, but this is a delight of banana bread with walnuts. It's a little boring to be honest, typical honeycomb and fall leaves meet almond and warm nuts as any other Balvenie, this one simply has an even sweeter twist of rum finishing to it.

    When this bottle was around $90CDN I got my bottle, now at 1.5x the price... it's def not worth it. IMO

    I’ve got a couple of fingers left in a bottle my brother in law got me for Christmas. I might just finish it off tonight, its a good middle of the road "don't shoot me babe its only a 60 dollar bottle" ;P

    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.

  10. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    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
