Whisky Reviews for Balvenie 16-year-old

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.45 points

  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    This whisky is quite OK but I expected much more to be honest. Pleasant but quite ordinary nose, flat palate and very simple aftertaste. Boring. Usually you don’t expect much from a travel retail release but 16-year-old Balvenie expression could be much better.
    • Nose
      Floral, fruity (apples), citrus, vanilla, oak, toffee, honey notes
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet, obvious oak bitterness, some spices (pepper and nutmeg), oat cookies, lemon zest, malty notes
    • Finish
      Medium long, spicy, warm, oaky, slowly getting dry
