    I was about to write a note but there is no need. I subscribe the one from Dris.

  4. Dris did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Not too refined drink: it's got some unripe fruitiness, and some nutty grainy sweetness, although the balance isn't right. Almost harsh.

  6. mmaclean scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I have enjoyed all of wht alvenie has done, including ths rare find.
    • Nose
      Rich and complex with honey and orange notes, with a hint of peat.
    • Taste
      sweet, smooth with light spice notes and a hint of sherry fruitiness.
    • Finish
      long with a pleasant lingering richness that you canexpect from Balvenie.

    I dont have many 10 year old scotches and this one is actually really nice. It has nice tones of smoke and vanilla. A nice one to share with friends and use as a intro to some of the finer selections.
