I had heard friends say good things about this blend. It is a blended malt made from 3 different single malts from The Balvenie, Glenfiddich and Kininvie.
The nose is inviting with vanilla, honey, sawdust, sultanas, pears and malty goodness.
It's smooth out of the glass and tingles the very tip of the tongue with mild spice. You get a big honey hit upfront, oak, spices, orange zest. The are dark fruits and maybe a little citrus. The malt lingers.
The finish is spicy, nutty, very slight hint of bitter oak and on the short side of medium.
This is an interesting blend, better than most that I have tried.
