Nose
Sweetness with some bubblegum (Bazooka Joe) strawberry,unsalted butter and orange zest. There's a real spearmint fragrance and a light waxiness.
Palate
Quite thick texture with good length and a set clover honey mid-palate. Some sweet spices gather towards the finish. Medium bodied.
Finish
Softand silky.
Comment
Best neat and further proof of Balvenie's premier league status.

Nose
Perfumy,creamy. Vanilla toffee. Steamed peaches.Hazelnut icecream. Developing on soft grassy notes.
Palate
Smooth and neat. In total harmony with the nose. A full basket of ripe fruit, enhanced by delicate spices. And a beautiful expression of sweet maltiness.
Finish
Nutty,drier,quite long.
Comment
A refined single malt delivering a well written ode to Speyside.
