    Single cask Balvenie (who still believes that teaspooning is something that really takes place?) by Archives, and what a beauty! Second bottle of Archives for Canada after the Glentauchers 1997 Dragonflies. I bought a bottle and decided to share it straight away. This whisky needs to be drunk in good company, not stored for the years to come.
    • Nose
      Tropical fruit alarm! That means lots of overripe peach, tinned pineapple, juicy mango and passion fruit. Followed by an attractive zesty sherbet of lemon, kiwi and lime. Whiffs of solvent. Sweetness of cinnamon in the background. Very promising.
    • Taste
      Very syrupy and oily with a gorgeous full and creamy mouth texture. Yellow pears, lychee and Galia melon intermingled with clover-honey and custard powder. Touch of ginger. Hints of dried coconuts and toasted almonds. Little fresh note of menthol as well.
    • Finish
      Medium long with some white pepper and refreshing eucalyptus wave on the finish. Roasted chestnuts. Becomes more herbal at the end. Well-balanced, seductive and impressive dram.

    Sweet Balvenie forest honey bomber reminiscent of Karamalz

    It has an oily viscosity and its bouquet is of a relatively strong intensity. I have aromas of honey, vanilla, creme brulee and citrus fruits. Moderately complex. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. He has clearly noticeable alcohol and a relatively heavy body.
