  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: We are in prune juice syrup heaven here if thats your thing. Theres not a huge complexity - it mainly comprises of dried ginger, bananas, sweet malt and honeyed kelp with wet flint and orange & pomegranate juice - and boy is it delicious.

    T: Sweet and rich sherried banana spirit with the dark oak presence showing through firmly on the development. Acute salt and burned bitter orange develops with a thick, bitter/sweet mouthful.

    F: Prune syrup returns with aniseed and a soft fresh spirit=oak concluding. Feel free to add water as it doesn’t seem to affect the profile or journey,

    C: Certainly a good example of a well executed aged sherry cask whisky for everyday drinking. Theres that familiar Balvenie signature ‘nice and easy’ presentation written all over this cask - a whisky for beginners and a sweet tooth maybe, but theres definitely more to this single cask than that.

    Scores a B-
