Whisky Reviews for Balvenie 15-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.25 points

  1. Sleinn nam Ffoh scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very balanced, but less dark-sherry than other barrels from the 15yo single barrel series.

    Great part ????
    • Nose
      Initially inconspicuous fruit notes, mirabelle, ripe and sweet figs, then develops a complex fruit soup over the spicy mint and lime flavors. Tart chocolates and raisins follow. Fassaromatisch and profound.
    • Taste
      Creamy and soft texture, complex fruit flavors, dates, figs, sweet honey, lime, mint. Nice complex.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, with balanced oak, mint and dryness. Accompany raisins and honey.

  2. zurbaran scored this whisky 88 points Newbie

    N: rich, clean and medium-heavy sherry nose, it already has maturity and depth, oranges, lighter rum fruits, clear but elegant oak spice

    T: Spicy vanilla, rum sugar, dark oranges, dates, fully and ripe, but not heavy, subtle oak spice in the finish, balanced by fruity sweetness

    Conclusion: flawless, not a sherry bomb, but well balanced, ripe and elegant. Has class.
