Full of sweet, nutty goodness. Very balanced between the sherry & classic Balvenie honey. Overpriced of course, as they all are

"There's no accounting for taste" ...So, you can't pay for it.

Becky Paskin from scotchwhisky.com says


NOSE

This is where the skill of the blender reveals itself. Some 31 casks have been married together by Balvenie malt master David Stewart, who has used their synergistic complexities to create a nose with a story. Honeycomb, tobacco leaf, leather, sultanas, warm baking spices, fig rolls and sherbet confection. With time comes vanilla ice cream over warm stewed apples.

PALATE

Thick and rich, but prickly. Rich dark fruits, caramelised pineapple and anise-spiced sticky toffee pudding studded with crystallised ginger and chilli. Randomly, hot buttered brown toast. Water brings out a slight rubbery note but also reveals Balvenie’s signature honeyed character.

FINISH

Round but spicy.

CONCLUSION

Another solid expression from Tun 1509, but could do with a slight reduction in strength to dampen the heat.

RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME

Smoking cigars and munching on chilli crackers next to the dessert buffet.


Scores: 8.1/10
