Nose
Cedary. Vanilla. Custard. Honey.
Palate
Toffee. Sweetish. Cedary. Scenty. Talc-like.
Finish
Coconut. Indian spices. Very long indeed.
Comment
A very interesting whisky, but the distillery character is better served with a dash of sherry.

Dave Broom

Nose
A malty, intense and slightly hard nose. Water tones it down showing sweet fruit, malt and bracken.
Palate
Totally different to the nose. Luscious and mellow with honey, chestnut, honeysuckle and cream. Builds beautifully still, with firm wood.
Finish
Sugared almond.
Comment
A subtle expression of The Balvenie.

Inspirational distilling
The VIP tour of Balvenie is quite arguably the best Scotland has to offer. Our man indulged himself.
