    Eyes: Golden smell Nose: cereals, butter, milk biscuits, a bit of expired preserved fruit. After waking up for ten minutes, some vanilla and dried apricots appeared. The smell is relatively simple, but the balance is still good. Palate: sour, medium sweet, slightly bitter, dried prunes, dried apricots, dried fruit, apple pie, cinnamon, cream meal pack, Honey red bean end rhyme Finish: long, woody spice, creamy small square body Body: water, supple,

    Nose: 84/100
    Palate: 84.5/100
    Finish: 84/100
    Body: 84/100
    Overall: 84/100, the problems of the few Balvenies (not high-end line) I have drunk are all the same, the wine is weak, the flavor tends to be flat, and the sense of balance is good, but it is difficult to impress me, I am too lazy to complain
