Proof66 Notes

The Balvenie Distillery takes its name from Balvenie Mains--the fields that gave the whisky its grain--and Balvenie Castle, both figuring in the history of the British Isles. It officially founded in 1893 by William Grant and it still grows its own barley from the 1,000 acre farm. The scotch is made with local spring water, lightly peated, and fermented in the unique "Balvenie ball" in the copper pot still that is mean to "concentrate and sweeten" the flavors.

Just a fantastic malt. Honeyed sweetness with some citrus and floral notes balanced very nicely with the oaky spice from the port wood. Putting this one on my Christmas list!

4.35/5, alright this one is an improvement. Nose is orangy citrus scents with sweet creamy smells (honey!). Mouth is light sweet wine giving way to the taste of cream and honey. Finish is medium.

Wow, loved this bottle. Very smooth, wide range of flavors and not too woody. Too bad it's $230 or I would have this on tap!
