Vatting of three young Speysiders: Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie. This is a blended malt that has been marketted at cocktail bars to young hipsters with shallow pockets. This works well as a neat sipper, but club goers drink more a cocktail right?
Nose: Vanilla, oak, banana, brown sugar, nuts, pear
Taste: Crème brulee, pears, grassy, oak, tannin
Finish: Dry, vanilla, crème brulee, white pepper, bitter oak, slight peat - very slight
The nose is the most pleasant aspect of this dram. I wont go as far to say the rest is a disappointment by comparison, but it nearly is, I blame this on the watery nature of the dram. This is good value and nicer than many a common blend.
Where is the Kininvie? I don't know exactly, it's swimming with youthful Balvenie and Glenfiddich.
BTW this whisky has "no legs" and it annoys me to see droplets all around my Glencairn. Talk about wasted youth.
