I tried the Doublewood version and quite liked it, but I liked the idea of the heavier sherry influence so I gave this a go...
Nose: sweet, tantalizing nose that keeps giving soft notes of coffee and caramel and vanilla. The spice of the sherry begins to show after some drops of water which open everything up nicely.
Palate: the palate delivers all the promises of the nose, and is full of powerful sherry with underlying sweetness from the bourbon oak casks also. It provides a spectrum of flavour that is lovely.
Finish: though lovely and sweet, it does not linger too long but is still rewarding. I really like the whole experience of this Balvenie and will buy again. For reference this watch batch 4!
