Distiller: Balvenie (The)
Region: Scotland - Speyside
Type: Single Malt
A mixture of moderation and exuberance, this 47% bottled and aged version in bourbon barrels, expresses clearly the style of Balvenie. Its exotic and fruity character, true signature of the Scottish distillery, makes it one of its best bottlings ever.
Tonic keeps the taster holding his breath from the beginning to the end. It has a fine and subtle profile, with perfumes of flowers (lily of the valley), fruits (pear), wood and vanilla, but also spices (cardamom) and herbs (verbena and sage).
The style is fresh and fruity, with a rich and complex fragrance, with durmast and vanilla notes. The taste is sweet with fruit, spices and honey flavors. Aftertaste warm and sweet.
