Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer THE BALVENIE
Not presented at the press/consultants preview in the LCBO lab. Last appeared in Vintages (***/***+) on December 8, 2012 at only $244.95 and was an Explorer Selection. Here is my note: Medium golden amber colour. Fairly intense, caramel tinged, very faintly smoky, orange citrus nose with some floral notes. Quite smooth, dry, harmonious, medium to medium-full bodied, slightly spicy, somewhat honeyed, plummy, caramel tinged flavours with a lingering, dryish finish. CSPC 500090
Type Spirit - Scotch Whisky
Agent PMA Can
Country Scotland
Rating ***/***+
Smooth, Honeyed
LCBO Note Status A Vintage Assessments Explorer's Selection!
TASTING NOTE: Rich and succulent, this super-luxe old Speyside spirit starts out friendly, with burnt honey, dried fruit and cashew flavours, before delivering a backslap of spice and seductive nuance of damp earth. Score - 93 (Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail, Nov. 25, 2011) Price $ 274.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
Tasting Date vintages release - December 7, 2013
