  1. Torfding scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      heavy ripe fruit, warm applesauce, orange peel, a little banana, sweet, soft and gentle, malty, a salty nose, vanilla, honey, a little ginger sharpness, later the sweetness pushes out a bit more
    • Taste
      stronger in comparison to the nose, first appears thin, but then comes very spicy and slightly peppery, sweet, spices, apricot, a little ginger, something like thick orange juice, yellow fruit (mirabelle), possibly apple, custard, a hint of cinnamon
    • Finish
      medium to long with a longer reverberation; The finish is citrus-rich, vanilla, pleasant oak note

  2. asmazda scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Totally has the Balvenie profile and no flaws. But compared to batch #1 it noses and taste brighter and younger so I have to score it 2 points lower.

  3. ctu scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    One of the best batches in the 1509 series and all of the NAS, but still the 1401 is my favorite because the more sherry.
    • Nose
      Fruits, vanilla, citruses and honey. Spicy oak. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Rich fruitiness, especially mandarin, piquant spices and matured oak in perfect harmony. Vanilla ice cream.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity, spicy.

  6. spigray scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    this is my second tun. after the first one that I have been offered at balvenie where I probably was a bit distracted I have been looking forward to enjoy another one in my familiar environment.

    it´s not a stellar dram but a very good one and I cannot understand malt fellows that rate it 80/100.

    for me it´s a straight 90/100 although I wished they could make it a little more affordable.
    • Nose
      a very elegant nose full of various fruits. pears, peaches, oranges, hints of pineapples. perhaps some bananas. some honeyed malt behind. nuts and a hint of oak.  a bit of well integrated vanilla.
      it does not seem to be very old, perhaps an average of 20y I´d say, but what do I know?
      I like it very much so far.
    • Taste
      great balance between the lovely fruitiness and an arising spiciness that you could not expect after the nose. rather woody but it works here. vanilla, honey.

      with a bit of water it even becomes spicier and a few nuts join in.
    • Finish
      medium to long, fresh and clean

  7. Segens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A good dram where the alcohol is well implemented and has a certain complexity but honestly at this price (300€) I was expecting a bit more. I also had the Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch 7 which was much much better than this one. Skip this one and look for different batches or completely different drams
    • Nose
      A high oak part and then juicy oranges and mandarines. Decent vanilla.

      All in all well implemented as expected on a dram with roughly 300€ purchase price.
    • Taste
      Oranges and mandarines are back in the mouth as well as nuts & honey but there is a decent oaky bitterness which is bothering me a bit. Not too much but we look for something flawless when pouring such dram in a glass.
    • Finish
      Vanilla and mandarines in the finish. No more bitterness and the dram remains positive in the throat.

  8. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A very high-quality, carefully worked out mole, everything is polished to a shine, the main roles here are bourbon derivatives, sherry somewhere in the backyard, shades and frames; in general, a sense of quality product, the work of the master, although in comparison with the first batch, it still clearly loses.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, processed noble wood, salted grape leaves, cigar box, carpentry workshop, varnish, solvent; ether, light apple notes.
    • Taste
      Soft, enveloping, oak, lemon pepper, lemon zest, tangerines, confectionery and fruit notes, a little tar and malt, tobacco, candied orange peel.
    • Finish
      Continuation of taste, soft, fruit jam, vanilla, a little nuts, moderately sweet and sour, light notes of orange peel and tangerines, nut-and-grass motifs appear in development, very long.

  9. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted blind Whisky n ° 1260 Enthusiasm 3/5
    It is more alcohol than what we feel!
    • Nose
      Green apple at first, very fresh. I will bet on a bourbon first fill of middle age. The fruits are becoming more fleshy and complex.
    • Taste
      Very balanced, extremely easy to drink. I miss a little point of attachment that will make it mark me.
    • Finish
      Easy, impression of fluidity.

  10. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very good whisky, too bad the price is not up to par.
    • Nose
      A very pleasant nose, not aggressive on honey, vanilla & fruits (apricots, oranges ...)
    • Taste
      The mouth is the perfect reflection of the nose with honey, apricot ... only the wood oak and bitterness are felt complement.
    • Finish
      Long on wood, oak, vanilla and bitterness (the good!)
