Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very aromatic. Butterscotch, honey. Acacia. Faint peat.
Palate: Buttery maltiness. Honey. Orange. Linctus-like. Hint of vanilla. Juicy oak.
Finish: Orange skins. Lemongrass. Lightly peaty balancing dryness.
Comment: A beautifully balanced classic Speyside whisky.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Beautifully delicate and floral with a layer of peat. Bourbon-style vanilla adds age, approaching perfection in Balvenie terms.
Palate: Oily rush of malt. Vanilla and bourbon kick and then infusion of spices and bitter chocolate.
Finish: Dries out and becomes vanilla rich. Remains cocoa dominant.
Comment: An astounding whisky for its age; head and shoulders above its Glenfiddich stablemate.
