Review door The Balvenie

« Deze review is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels »
Geur

Hints of beeswax, fresh ground spices and a subtle earthiness.

Smaak

First impressions are of mixed spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves) combined with sweet, fruity, sherried flavours.

Afdronk

long and rich with a touch of dryness at the very end.

Conclusie

Rich and intense with complex layers of sherried oak, spiced apples, caramelised pears and toasted almonds.

Notitie

This limited edition release from 2007 spent all 17 years of its maturation in first fill Oloroso sherry casks. The result pays homage to the casks’ southern Spanish origins.

On the addition of a little water a delicate vanilla character reveals itself with stewed fruit sweetness and a touch of oak tannin.
