The nose is a fruit bomb with pears and fruit cocktail. The palate is fruity and malty in equal parts. The finish is mostly malty with some cereal and cocoa.

 

This one is bright and fruity. It's not overly complex but is nicely drinkable, a good edition to the Balvenie lineup and a perfect lighter whiskey for those hot summer months. Keep in mind, as a single barrel release, barrels may vary.

Fruity with lots of toffee sweetness.  There is a soft oily/ buttery component to it that makes this very enjoyable.  Dried fruit mix on the palate with a lengthy finish.  Straight forward and tasty.
