Tasting Notes

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.
