The flagship single malt from Balvenie's little group of Port Wood whiskies. This bottling was finished in thirty year old port pipes and is a veritable masterclass in poise and balance.
Nose: Elegant. White peach and a faint puff of smoke.
Palate: Surprisingly delicate. Abounding, yet fine. Her sublime mouth feel carries, masterfully: red fruit, raisins, an edge of white grape and a very floral honey.
Finish: Cocoa, slightly bitter as it tails away gracefully.
