Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch 4

by Oliver Klimek on June 29, 2012

50.4%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright copper
Nose: Toasted nuts, honey, orange zest, dates, figs, cinnamon, hints of cardamom.
Palate: Very much like the nose but not quite as strong and underlined with a slight bitterness.
Finish: Rather long, fruity and dry.
Overall: This really could be a great whisky, but there is a bitter element on the palate that I found a bit unpleasant.

Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Ahh, nice to see things back to normal as we don’t quite agree again :-)
I was 2 points more generous as I didn’t find the bitterness, but it was very mouth-coating with some very rich flavours for a Balvenie.
