Tasting Notes

"This peated whisky from Balvenie has a wonderfully smoky, peaty, even meaty aroma in the glass. It delivers on these promises on the palate, too: It's savory and smoky, and full-bodied, with hints of pear and almond to balance its assertive character. A little bit of heat lingers on finish with smoke and vanilla. It's an excellent single malt that would be perfect for sipping by a campfire."
