  1. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Standard Balvenie with a unique twist. Peat was so subtle it may as well have been unpeated cask.

    • Nose

      On the nose we do not find the vanilla side of Balvenie, partly masked by the smoky side of the whisky. We can smell notes of toasted cereals and spices.
    • Taste
      82 82
      The whisky opens immediately on peaty notes, moist moss and then gradually offers a more cereal aspect. But nothing exceptional, all this remains pretty basic.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is long, with notes of roasted coffee and an amazing freshness at the end of the mouth, slightly lemony.
