  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Another waxy, sweet, and uber-fruity Balvenie single cask (a.k.a. Burnside these days when bottled by IB's) from Archives. This time for Taiwan. This whisky needs time to open up all its flavours and taste.
    • Nose
      The nose starts with citrusy fruitiness of lemon, gooseberries and kiwi. Followed by plenty of mango and papaya. Later on undertones of pear drops, kaki fruit, and peel zest. Some flowery notes of heather and hay as well. Jasmine and chamomile in the background. Lovely!
    • Taste
      Classical Balvenie palate now with lots of vanilla, custard, and honey mixed with dried coconuts and overripe bananas. Bergamot. Later on fudgy notes of butterscotch and toffee. Sugared almonds. In the background hints of toasted oak and aniseed. It's all quite oily and mouth coating waxy.
    • Finish
      Medium long with white pepper and a little ginger. Liquorice. Some menthol and pine at the end.
