Palate: Fudge. Almonds. Honey. Orange. Minty.
Finish: Lemony. Dry. Warming. Very long.

Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Deep oak with hint of berry fruits and buttered crumpets. Very firm.
Palate: Clean surge of unspecified fruitness.
Finish: Hardens into a very brittle maltiness and oak.
Comment: A rather unusual Balvenie but delicious nonetheless!
