    Rich Balvenie in taste, but far away the disstillerys best.

    • Finish
      Medium length, oaky, fruity

  7. pianoman scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Somewhat fuller than the 12-year-old. Yellow raisins, marzipan, orange blossom. Raspberries, blueberries, some wild mint.
    • Taste
      Lemon cake, honey, almonds. Some oak flavor and cocoa powder. Medium.

  8. Andytka3 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N- Multi-layer and charming, complex but not complicated. Very pleasant with no lack of aromas, very Balvenie indeed. Mint chocolate, lifted toffee with fresh orange, tangeline, plum and thin coat of wood.

    P- Balance with good weight despite at low strength. Boiled spices, figs and stewed fruits. Whiff of paper and wood plank lurking at the tail.

    F- Medium, more paper and bitterly herbs dominant, obvious tannin on the gum, return of oak. — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
