Made the same way as the 12 year old by a combination of three different cask types - Oloroso Sherry casks, first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels, and what The Balvenie calls “traditional whisky casks”. This is an international, duty-free release.

n: green apple skins, brown sugar, caramel, and sweet vanilla.

 

t: Malty banana cream pie, honey hard candy, and some gentle spice. Very soft and hard to discern the companents. Very sweet with waxed fruit and butter biscuits in the finish. It's easy to drink, but very boring and safe and totally bland. The nose was the best aspect.  [C+/C]

This has a nice malty nose with a hint of peat and some sweet notes. On the palate it's got peat with a slight honey sweetness and then some real savory notes in the back. It ends on a very dry note and picks up a slight soapiness in the finish.

Peach, mixed fruit bowl syrup, honey and pronounced oak.  Luckily it isn't over-Oaked.

The fruit is sharp and crisp. Mid palate is lightly tannic and bitter.

Fresh oak, sea salt and light smoke on the lingering finish.

Nice sherried nose.  Ripe berry, plum and pomegranate.  Yellow daikon radish, incense, leather and wet tobacco.

 

Much of the same on palate.  Has a nice balance with the bitter notes because it isnt too sweet.

 

Dark bitter chocolate and hints of smoke.

This one has peat on the nose with some light wine notes; they come together like burnt sugar or toffee. The palate is a heavy blast of peat with some cocoa and vanilla notes in the background. It grows sweet as it goes down, and the finish is sweet wine with peat. I'm not generally a fan of port finishes, but I liked this one. The wine notes from the port contrast well with the peat.

The nose has very light sherry notes and more of that oatmeal. The palate is sweet and fruity at first then develops some maltiness. The finish is mostly malt. The sherry influence on this is present but pretty light. A few drops of water does very well with this one, bringing out some stronger sherry notes on the palate along with some sweet vanilla notes.

This has a nose of raw oatmeal. The palate is sweet, slightly soapy and a bit funky. It's definitely got some raw grain, young whiskey notes. The finish is malty with some fruit notes. Water brings out more malty notes on the palate. This is a decent malt but nothing exciting.

The nose is a fairly traditional bourbon profile, a light one like Beam with a touch of sweet wine. The palate has three distinct parts. It starts with a bourbon note, similar to the nose. As it lingers, it starts to pick up the dessert wine notes. The final flavor is a sherry like intensive wine note which carries into the finish.
