Review by The Balvenie

Nose

Richly complex aroma that is a harmonious blend of floral, fruity and spicy notes, including orange, fresh cherries, marzipan, cinnamon and a hint of allspice.

Palate

Its taste reveals luscious layers of rich fruit, spicy oak, honey and delicate tannins. The flavours flow from sweet vanilla through to dried fruits (raisins, sultanas, apricots) and finish with subtle soft leather and tobacco leaf.

Finish

Long and lingering with a crisp dry oakiness.

Note

In 2008 the Malt Master selected for bottling a rare cask from 1975. Cask 15354 was distilled on 23rd September 1975 and just over 32 years later in April 2008 produced 216 bottles at a cask strength of 47.3% abv.

The Balvenie Cask 15354 is available only in Taiwan.
