  2. RJKrueger scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    It is always worth trying supposedly simple Bourbon Cask Malts - a Balvenie that surprised me in a positive way.
    • Nose
      87 87
      The aroma is typically mild, but also complex with pear, some citrus notes, marzipan, macademia.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The taste is then a bit spicier, more vanilla and sesame-honey-caramel.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium length and gentle.

    2021-02-18: freshly opened, unfortunately I like it much worse than WID 63573. I'll leave it open for a few months and then review it again.
    • Nose
      Spices, vanilla, a bit hot
    • Taste
      Oak, spice, vanilla
