Distiller: Balvenie (The)
Region: Scotland - Speyside
Type: Single Malt
Single malt aged in bourbon casks, later refined for several months in Port wine barrels.
• Color: copper with pink shades.
• Fragrance: evokes gently the fine wood (rose wood) and spices (pepper).
• Taste: vivid, it develops on citrus (orange) and ripe fruit (peach). Creamy notes of fresh grapes and a light hint of ripe fruits (ripe fruits, apricot, nuts) underline the time spent in Port barrels.
• Aftertaste signed by light notes of under wood (durmast, champignon) but still with bitter sweetness of malted barley.
