  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    I'll be honest. The heavy sherry did obscure some of the more delicate, fruity, and honeyed notes I usually find in my favorite Balvenies, but I still like this a lot. Cinnamon and 5-spice powder with a nice fruity flare. Wish I had more than a 20ml pour so I can play with water a bit. 92+.

    Tasted at a local whisky club / Balvenie event with Kelsey McKechnie in attendance. They were in town introducing their "Stories" line of whisky.

    Colour: Bright copper
    Nose: A perfect sherry nose with dried fruit, orange zest, wood notes and mild spices.
    Palate: Dried apricots and figs, orange zest, toasted walnuts, dark toffee, nutmeg, black pepper, hints of cardamamom.
    Finish: Very long, fruity and spicy.
    Overall: One of the finest noses I have ever smelled, and the palate is almost on the same level. It is not really a sherry bomb, the whisky part is just as prominent. Not exactly cheap, though.
