Whisky Reviews for Balvenie 15-year-old

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.00 points

  1. PeterCr scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Amazing dynamics and complexity in the taste. Clearly recognizable casktype. Very comparable to the new 12yo Single Barrel edition which also lacks a bit of complexity on the nose.

    Score 90pts. (Could have been 1 point higher if nose was more complex)
    • Nose
      Fruity, banana, honey, little spice, some caramel. Sweet candy. Hints of vanilla. Typical traditional oak nose. Could have been a but more exciting/complex.
    • Taste
      Nice sweet attack with ripe fruits, followed by some heat and spices (pepper, nutmeg) in the middle. Mouthwarming in the middle but exactly right heat. Superb balance! Nice slow legs in the glass giving It a nice body/texture.
    • Finish
      Finish is sweet again (creamy caramel) and long.
