Sweet, barley and yeasty dough notes. Some vanilla cream, light honey and some pleasant floral notes. Reminds me of a younger double wood.
Mild, thin, mouth feel. Honey, vanilla cream, light floral notes, its very Balvenie. No doubt.
Short to medium, no heat and no noticeable proof. Sweet and doughy, one dimensional but sweet, light and would have been a great summer sipper with the sunset.
It's good but nothing exceptionally different than standard Balvenie. It's light, sweet and floral and although I really wish I could try it at cask strength, it's not a bad dram as it is. Certainly too low in the proof which I wager is the source of the delicacy but there are no major negative flaws to speak of. For this reason, I'm giving this dram a 5.
