Balvenie Tun 1858 Batch 1

by Oliver Klimek on July 7, 2013

Taiwan exclusive – 50.4%

My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright copper
Nose: A perfect sherry nose with dried fruit, orange zest, wood notes and mild spices.
Palate: Dried apricots and figs, orange zest, toasted walnuts, dark toffee, nutmeg, black pepper, hints of cardamamom.
Finish: Very long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: One of the finest noses I have ever smelled, and the palate is almost on the same level. It is not really a sherry bomb, the whisky part is just as prominent. Not exactly cheap, though.

Rating: 92/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
