With beautiful wood and a hint of citrus in the taste, easily drinkable and light-fruity, an absolute must as every-day scotch and entry-level model. Lesson 1 of good whisky without being sweet.
Oak benches in the fragrance, as far as I am concerned, the trademark of the Balvenies that I have been able to taste so far - most, very desirable Balvenies are beyond my budget. Non-offensive, a typical English-language term, which I consider untranslatable - and more often used to describe whisky - is very relevant here. I honestly cannot imagine that you really do not like this whisky as a lover. Maybe a bit flat or bland, impersonal or not very memorable - but dirty or unpleasant, no.
New liter bottle in 2018. Quickly empty. That is also due to the smooth application in my shares. Nonetheless: fine, nothing wrong with it, hazelnuts with soft wood, friendly vanilla, magic fairies and pink unicorns with rainbow backgrounds. Sweet, soft, woolly, cuddly, nothing wrong with that, nor anything at all.
