Re: What are you drinking now?
Went to Balvenie tasting tonight.
Balvenie 17 Doublewood
N: apricot, oranges, honey, nutmeg, butter
P: chocolate, vanille/butterscotch, nutmeg, cinnamon
F: long, rich, dried oranges
I think this is very good and fits right in line with the 12 yo Doublewood.
Balvenie 30, 47.3
N: sharp oak, wood polish, cinnamon, parafin, vanilla, dried ginger
P: honey, toffee, oranges, parafin, polished walnut
F: long, rich, spicy, chocolate
A drop of water mellowed the sharp oak note. This is a very good whisky.
Balvenie 1401, batch 6, 49.8
N: honey, polished oak, cinnamon, lemon, dried ginger, toffee
P: dried cumin and ginger, cedar, polished oak, wood resin
F: long spicy
Likely the best Balvenie I've ever tried.
