Nosing: Sweet honey, a little bit of nuts and berries

Taste: Starts off a little thin, candied dark fruits (sugar plum candies???), gentle spiciness

Finish: milk chocolate...medium length. not too bitter

Comment: while somewhat thin, it has a very great flavor and is an "easy sipping scotch". This is the perfect "safe" whisky, and I mean that in the most positive way. It's complex, but doesn't have anything that takes you by surprise either. It's approachable for the newcomer, while still being enjoyable by most connoisseurs. Regardless, I personally think that it is somewhat overpriced, but if you don't have any issues with the $$$'s this is a must for any balvenie fan.

Comment: This was yet again a beautiful product by Balvenie. I didn't like it as much as the 15 years old single barrel Sherry cask as I love a strong Sherry note and this one didn't have it as much but was still very good.
