Nose: Oh wow! That first sniff is nothing short of incredible: fragrance and perfume Balvenie with sweet, heavy old sherry notes of spices and stewed fruits. Plums, lots of cherries liquer (like Heering ), chocolate filled in cherry and a bit of leather.

Palate: Oak, sherry goodness, spicy with pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, kirshberry liquer, nuts and it’s oh so very smooth.

Finish: Starts spicy and goes mellow oak with linger cherries liquor.

Thoughts: Oh my god, this is the textbook definition for Dream dram (until I taste the 50 yo ,that is). It’s a sensational dram and I’m so glad I got to try it. It’s not a whisky I can afford to buy (unless I win the lottery) so my hearty gratitude to Balvenie and Jonny Cornthwaite, for giving me that opportunity.
