    Smooth oak wood and mossy gardens on the nose. On the palate a complex mix of dark currants and sweet peat. The peat is subtle but ‘up front’ moving quickly aside for an oily finish.

    Smell is instantly heavy peat with some fruity undertones. The peat is tame until the finish, when it shows up strong.

    Oh this is good. Dirty good. It’s like that girl in chemistry class. She had her hair up. Glasses. Sweater and long skirt. Usually you saw her in lab, wearing those lab goggles and lab coat. One fine evening, she’s at a University of Michigan party. Unrecognizable...hair down, no glasses, T-shirt and shorts. Polar opposite than the young woman pipetting in lab. That’s this Balvenie. I normally associate Balvenie as mild, heather scented, and pretty straight and narrow. Not this Balvenie. It’s sooty, dirty. The aroma is like charcoal, moves to mossy taste, like wet earth, but with the sweet backbone. The heather character is still at its center and part of the Balvenie DNA, but the sooty makeover really makes it shine. Highly recommended. Thanks @LeeEvolved for this pour!
