|15 YEARS OLD SINGLE BARREL SPEYSIDE SINGLE MALT Single Speyside Malt
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
|Medium amber colour. Complex, spicy, very slightly smoky, sweetish, caramel-plum nose. Intense, medium bodied, well structured, expansive, very slightly peppery, spicy, bright, ripe, plum-caramel flavours with a lingering, very faintly smoky, tangy, cedar-tinged finish. Better than when it last appeared in Vintages (***) on July 5, 2013 at $163.95 and was an Explorer Selection.

|TASTING NOTE: One of the finest Balvenie 15 year olds I've 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 doesn't have the depth that the classic older Balvenies have shown in the past, but what it does have, it has in spades. Beautiful! Score - 91 (John Hansell, Whisky Advocate, Summer 2010)
