    A very different flavor profile for a Balvenie, leaning towards cocoa powder and coffee grounds rather than its trademark honey. Finishes strong and long with more cocoa powder and black Russian bread. These are all tastes I gravitate towards - porters and stouts are my favorite beers - and Balvenie is to be commended for experimenting with barley variations. But I found the nose disappointingly shy.
