TASTING NOTE: One of the finest Balvenie 15 year olds Iżve tasted. The flavors are clean, well defined, confident, and beautifully balanced. Full malty foundation (with some ripe barley thrown in). Soft, creamy vanilla, honeycomb, bright fruit (orange, nectarine, lemon peel, hints of pineapple), with emerging dried vanilla, coconut, oak resin, and subtle anise. Polished oak finish. It doesnżt have the depth that the classic older Balvenies have shown in the past, but what it does have, it has in spades. Beautiful!
