Distribution of ratings for this:
Colour: Light gold. Nose: Burning alcohol, flowers, citrus, grass, bubblegum Palate: Pretty much what I would expect from an entry level Speysider, a little fruit, citrus,caramel, slightly aggresive alcohol, had I tasted this blind I would have expected it to be more than 50% abv, bubblegum. Very faint smoke. Fairly thin mouthfeel. Finish: Furtunately quite short, along the lines of the above mentioned. Based on the rewievs I´d read about this, I wxpected this to be a fairly anonymus entry level single malt, that would be a cheap but not very interesting daily dram. This proved to be basically ehat I got, but the alcohol seemed quite agressive. Also the bubblegum was much more prominent that I would like it to be. It should be noted that this IS in fact fairly inexpensive, but I can still find several other whiskies in the same pricerange and style, that I would rather have, good examples would be Cragganmore 12 and Cardhu 12. I would however rather spend a Little more, and get something that I actually enjoy. Next time I shop for a daily dram in this style, I will certainly spend the Little extra some of Balvenies entry level versions cost.
