Nose: Sweet Nose of Honey, Vanilla and hints of pears and sugar candy, on the edges you can also detect citrusy (lemony) zest. very well integrated.

Palate: Wood , spice, honey,some chocolate notes and sweet malty syrup. Oily and rich.

Finish: First a bit sweet, then drying ,long ending on oak,malt extract and wood spice. Not bad at all!

Summing it up:

Staring with a great nose that you can sniff for hours, and then to a yummy palate , thick and big bodies at a nice 47.5% ABV, this one is stunner. I like the extra sweetness and character that comes form the Rum finish, which is done wonderfully here. A really great dram not to pass on if you visit the travel retails shops on one of your next trip abroad. Now i do need to buy a ticket and fly somewhere. One more reason

I must admit, the Balvenie range is something I've managed to never get around to, but this certainly kindles my interest! Now all I need to do is figure out where to start!
