Complex, luscious, gorgeous.
1970 Vintage Cask
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: An elegant, soft, luscious, nose that reminds you of pancakes dripping with butter and honey.
Palate: Soft and mouthfilling with little spikes of wood notes and citrus. Dries as it develops.
Finish: Ripe soft and long, drying into wood then burnt orange.
Comment: Complex, luscious, gorgeous.
Nose: Fudge. Honey. A hint of heather. Very soft.
Palate: Intensely sweet and Sauternes-like. Or perhaps orange muscat? With water, yet sweeter and fruitier.
Finish: Becoming more like dark, clear, liquid, honey.
Comment: Extraordinarily distinctive. All the characteristics I expect in Balvenie, but I have never experienced them in such a concentrated intensity.
