Distiller: Balvenie (The)
Region: Scotland - Speyside
Type: Single Malt Whisky
This single malt, a great Speyside classic, aged in bourbon barrels has been aged a year in Oloroso sherry casks.
Amber in color, the nose is marked by sherry and citrus. The mouth gradually evokes the sweetness of sherry, citrus fruits and spices.
Overall sweet, with a good body. The hints of bourbon stand out among the others; delicate spice with a little vanilla, a hint of balancing peat that lurks silently in the substrate. Also dried fruit, combined with walnuts, nutmeg, cinnamon, all perfectly integrated.
Final long, warm, spicy, slightly dried, still sweet.
